Work is being done to make this park a conservancy after it fell into a state of decay with vagrants living here and the municipality not maintaining it adequately. It will be called the Gardens Conservancy and it runs from behind Norwood Mall from the listed coordinates (next to Hamlin Street) to African Street. The entire park has been fenced off in preparation for major clean ups to improve it. The park has been locked for a couple of months now as work in cleaning it up starts. I have liaised with the Residents Association so that us geocachers can also help out and make this project a success. Two CITOs have been held here in June and July and both were a huge success with ~90 bags of rubbish being collected in total over the two events!
Date: Sunday 25 September 2016
Time: 12:00 - 14:00

I will also provide water and soap to wash your hands afterwards.
You can either park at the fast food outlet or across from the park - please see the listed parking coordinates. We will meet at the listed coordinates and then spread out along this park and pick up litter.
