$230,000 paving upgrade for Glebe Park

By Barcham - 24 April 2013 6

Glebe Park is set to get some fancy new paving, with Territory and Municipal Services announcing a $230,000 upgrade in the works.

“Glebe Park is a popular recreational destination for Canberrans on weekends and also at lunchtimes during the week,” said Diana Hill, Manager, Design and Development, said.

“With the continued growth in the number of people living and working in the City, as well as nearby residential developments about to be completed, this paving upgrade will improve the quality and safety of the Glebe Park pavement.

“About 1300 square metres of paving to the northern section of Glebe Park will be replaced which had deteriorated due to constant use. The upgrade builds on the replacement of a 6500 square metres of paving that was renewed in 2010. The new clay pavers have been selected to match the existing paving.

“Recreational access to this part of Glebe Park will be improved once the new pavers are laid,” Ms Hill said.

Hope they do a good job like Veterans Park near Northbourne Ave. It is great to use and the upgrade is great. It looks like a real park now, great design of the SAS memorial. People use the park all the time.

As far as I can tell there’s a few missing pavers and some minor lifting due to tree roots. Why this requires replacement of 1300sq/m of paving is beyond me. The main benefit of paving is that you can simply repair/replace small areas if they become damaged.

But only spending small amounts of cash doesn’t make whomever is organising this feel very powerful.

They replaced all of the north side like 3 years ago.

If they didn’t dick around with el’cheapo jobs it would be done already!

“quality and safety of the Glebe Park pavement.”
Whats unsafe about the current paving? I thought glebe was unsafe before its across the road from bega flats and home to odd folk.

Why do they keep fiddling with it? Leave the damn thing alone! It’s fine as it is!

It’s not fine, it now looks like a poor cousin of the other city centre parks they’ve updated recently. But I do agree, why keep fiddling with it? Either leave it, or spend a decent amount and really give it some shine.
