Roimata food commons
The Roimata Food Commons group is a volunteer group who would like to see the creation of the Roimata/Woolston Community Hub in Radley Park. This group have already been involved in the existing planting of fruit trees and native plantings within Radley Park.
The vision for Roimata is to create a mulit-faceted community hub with fruit and berry orchards and large beds to grow vegetables and herbs. The produce from the orchard and garden can then be harvested by the local community to feed those who put time into the garden or to those in need in the community.
If the lease/license is approved, the Roimata Food Commons group would like to have the raised gardens completed in time for September 2018 planting.
If there are any objections to the lease/license proposal then a Reserves Hearings Panel will be required. This panel will listen to any objections and then make their recommendation to the Community Board who will then
make the final decision on the granting of the lease/license.
Dog agility area
Radley Park is classified as a dog exercise area within the Dog Control Policy and Bylaw. This means that Radley Park is recommended and known to be a good place to exercise dogs off-leash.
We currently have around $5,000 available in the current financial year for the upgrade of the dog agility area. We would be interested to know if you use this area and how you would like to see this area upgraded.
A new solar charging picnic table will be installed near the existing playground this financial year. The solar charge table is a table that can be used to charge a range of mobile devices, such as tablets, phones, games consoles and electronic book readers.
Future unfunded works
These projects are currently unfunded, but we would like to have some feedback on whether you would support the inclusion of these projects if funding became available in the future.
