2013 December-- work in the park

December 2013


News snippet:



  In June someone dumped a load of white tiles
in the park next to the parking area.
Elizabeth and Volcar took them to the dump
..........................................................................................

Florence Bloom Bird Sanctuary dam wall

When Peter and Volcar  cleared the mud away , this
huge hole was then visible.
It was cleaned out and 14 wheelbarrow loads of cement
were rammed into the hole.



 That looks better, and looks strong enough to hold
for a good few years.

 Bird Sanctuary hyacinth regrowth

Day One

From the bird hide this channel full of hyacinth
 was all too visible.

Ian almost at the landing area with a boatload.
The haul for day one --
quite impressive for only two people!

Day Two


Ian and Aleksandra tipping the excess
water out the boat.

The bigger pile after day two


Our two boat cars!

Another island of weed to remove!

After three days.
Now the last few will have to wait until next year.

Treefall

Sunday 15th December
This huge gum tree came down after a storm
and blocked Road No 3

The following day it was all cut up
and the road open again
. Well done City Parks
..................................................................................

Sinkhole


This sinkhole appeared in the bottom dam wall


Peter and Wilson cleaned it out.
and started  filling and compacting the soil

 
Almost filled!


All done and it was fine after 40mm of rain

That's all for this year!

 

Wishing you all a wonderful Festive Season and a very Happy New Year!
