Whats on this month...
And then there was light
Community Park Progress
Good news for everyone that is eagerly waitng for
Invercargills frst dog park. Robin Pagan, ICC Parks
Manager, says they are now sourcing materials and doing
the fnal marking-out on site.
He says that constructon will start by early September and
the park will be ready for use by November at the latest,
and possibly earlier if the weather holds.
We, and our canine friends, couldnt be happier!
Now that the Overgrown Secton Programme is up and
running and well supported, the South Alive Housing
Group is tackling another worthwhile issue theyd like to
see improved for South Invercargill residents. Calling the
project, Responsible Dog Ownership, Margaret Cook, the
convenor of the Housing group, says that it will ft in well
with another South Alive project, the establishment of
Invercargills frst dog park.
Council Animal Control Oﬃcers advise that the two main
issues they deal with in the South area are barking and
wandering dogs and the Housing group agrees that these
are areas of concern. They have therefore agreed to work
with the Council, as they have with the overgrown sectons,
to once again develop a community focused programme
that will address this on-going problem.

Through the great work of Network Electrical Services
(NES), much of it provided as a donaton to South
Alive and the community, our park is now lit up at
night which is great for all the nocturnal basketballers
and gardeners and we also have lights in the South
City mall car park. This has made the area safer and
more atractve for everyone, so a big thanks to NES.
The park was a hive of actvity at the weekend. We had teams shovelling and spreading dirt, de-nailing tens of pallets and
building the paling fence, plantng and weeding the community garden boxes and building a planter box along the top
of the back fence. And lets not forget the team across in our oﬃce kitchen keeping us supplied with great food and hot
drinks. We have more landscaping work (mainly raking) and fence building to do, so if you can lend a hand wed love to
have your help. Give us a call!
