Black River Walkway - Site #107

Frances Taylor

Identifier of this site

This site forms part of the Liesbeek to Black river corridor, and it borders a walkway. It runs through the Little Mowbray business district towards the M5 bridge, which crosses over the Black River.

Why is this important?

This site is located in Mowbray. Mowbray is located in close proximity to Table Mountain, and there is a lot of potential to create 'stepping stones' within the area that allow animals (like birds) to come down from Table Mountain and expand their territory, possibly connecting with other areas in the region. However, in order to have a funcional network of stepping stones it is important that the right species are planted throughout the neighbourhood, and that there are sufficient green sites in the area.

However, this vision is only a proposal and we invite you to comment on it. Are there any other species that would do well? Are there particular uses for this site that we should take into consideration? Do you have a spectacular vision for the plot? Do you have any ideas to involve the wider community?
