Soldiers Park Pathway Extension Begins
Work started today on extending the pathway in Soldiers Park, Eltham.
South Taranaki District Mayor, Phil Nixon, says the pathway extension will create an 800-metre loop track in the Park, and is one of the projects the Council has been working on to improve recreational opportunities across the District.
The contract for the development has been let to Excavat and is expected to take 2 weeks, weather permitting. Some of the new sections will be fine lime chip with other areas of the existing pathways remaining mown grass.
The new pathway will complement the work being done by local volunteers, Eltham Restore, who are working to revegetate the area with native riparian planting along the Mangawharawhara Stream while also providing better access for weed control.
Visitors to the Park are asked to avoid the development area while the work is underway.
