Golden Harvest Park is an important green space in Northwold, and is regarded one of Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo’s (JCPZ)as the flagship parks. Yesterday I visitd the park to check on the recent upgrades ahead of the handover later this week.
I am pleased to report that the project has hit all of its targets, including a brand-new outside gym, an upgraded children’s play area, a soccer field, ablution facilities, paving at the JCPZ depot, the rehabilitation of the bridge, and the removal of the old dilapidated Mayoral Lapa.
The park has seen many improvements from a major reduction in crime incidents, to the launch of a Park Run that has seen over 1000 participants joining in.
These achievements have been made possible through the contribution of the community and many stakeholders such as the residents associations, the Friends of Golden Harvest Park, JMPD, SAPS, and local private security companies.
We hope to see many local residents enjoying the use of the new facilities available at the park and taking care of them through shared ownership. The DA will continue to work towards ensuring that the residents of Ward 101 are afforded a safe and welcoming environment to live, work, and play in.
