Liesbeek Parkway Plot - Site #78

Frances Taylor

Identifier of this site

This patch is located just off Liesbeek Parkway, bordering the Liesbeek River. Unfortunately, it is currently underused. There is a large swathe of grass but barely anyone uses this. There is a lot of potential for improvement. The space can be accessed by a bridge and could be a nice playground for children. The vegetation can be vastly improved and the safety aspect can also be much better by general upkeep and use of the plot.

Why is this important?

This site is located in Rosebank. Rosebank 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.
