His Chiefliness brings the happy news Canberra CBD Limited is shelling out 6/7ths of the $700,000 needed to refurb West Row Park in Civic (note even the Dear Leader has reverted to the traditional name).
The package of works includes new seats, footpaths, bike racks, street lights and drought-tolerant shrubs. There’s also a special planting of Canberra’s Centenary Correa, Canberra Bells.
Canberra CBD Limited provided $600,000 for the upgrades through its City Centre Marketing and Improvements Grant Program with the remaining $100,000 funded by the ACT Government.
Chief Minister Jon Stanhope joined Canberra CBD Limited Chairman, Emmanuel Notaras today to unveil the revamped park.
