New park

The new park.

With various ongoing projects at Princess Vlei those part of the restoration of the vlei are doing all they can to make it a top destination for locals. Ward 72 allocated funds to have a park built for children to enjoy. Ward councillor Kevin Southgate said the building of the park is part of the City’s ongoing commitment to develop the Princess Vlei precinct.  Local residents, environmentalists, volunteers, schools and concerned citizens campaigned to save Princess Vlei from commercial development, and embarked on a process to restore the natural fauna and flora on the site – dubbing the initiative “Dressing the Princess”.
