KAWERAU’S flowerbeds are being prepared for new winter planting along with a continued focus on lifting branches around the town’s parks.
Kawerau District Council was briefed about maintenance of the town’s parks and reserves at a regulatory and services committee meeting last week.
Operations and services manager Tom McDowall said the focus for February was lifting branches over footpaths.
Work at Tarawera Park began last month and will continue in March, along with removing undergrowth in the Stoneham Walk and Valley Road areas.
Councillor Alistair Holmes said he noticed the change along Valley Road and thanked the council’s parks and reserves staff for a fantastic job.
The summer flower beds were scheduled for removal in March and April before winter planting began in April, Mr McDowall said.
A walking track along the side of the Tarawera River was also cleared and mowed.
