I posted recently about the little park in my street where my mooring is. I use the park whenever I want to take the canoe for a paddle or throw a fishing line in. The old rusty steel retaining wall has now been removed and replaced with a far more attractive low rock wall. I believe the cost of the project was in the order of $400,000. It’s an enormous improvement, I guess it should be for that price.
Below is a series of photos of the project.
It’s almost finished and I’m extremely happy with the result. I’ll get lots of good use from it when I access the water. The fancy new turf is like a bowling green. Maybe a Sunday game of barefoot bowls and a BBQ is in order. I wish they would have put in a jetty.
This photo is looking along the waterfront. It’s not really a rock wall but more of a few layers of rocks.
I think the Council will probably plant a few trees here since it looks a bit bare, but it’s a nice start.
Cutty is having a ball running around on the new grass. She is over in the right of the photo having a good sniff of the freshly laid turf.
And the evening view is equally as nice.
