Turn the water on

Letters

The South Island Recreation Association (SIRA) is seeking community support to re-establish the water play area at Broom Hill Park, 2280 Pyrite Drive.

According to district records it has not been operational since 2006. An inspection of the system at that time showed that the metal pipes and fittings were heavily corroded.  In 2007 a decision was made that a full replacement of the system would be preferred since it was nearly the same cost to repair as it was for a full replacement. A budget did not exist at that time to proceed with either repair or replacement, and to date staff have not been directed to re-instate the amenity.

With sufficient community interest, SIRA will sponsor a proposal to be taken before council in support of a request that the water play area be allocated a budget and made operational.

Interested parents, grandparents, or sponsors, please respond by email to: admin@sirec.info
