Weinberg family park rehab finally underway after Joburg Water’s delay causes uproar!



Weinberg Family Park is undergoing a rehabilitation process

The Weinberg Family Park is undergoing a three-week rehabilitation process. Then the Savoy Estate Residents Association and Waverley Ratepayers Residents Homeowners Association. This initiative comes two weeks after the Rosebank Killarney Gazette highlighted the park’s deteriorating condition and unfinished projects on its front page.

One of the main problems in the park was a dug-up sewer pipe, which threatened the community members who used the facility. Nolwazi Dhlamini, Johannesburg Water’s marketing and communication officer, confirmed to the Gazette on April 21 that the rehabilitation process would start on April 24. However, workers had to put the project on hold because City Parks failed to renew the required wayleaves for contract workers to execute the work in the park. Furthermore, environmental activists identified environmental concerns regarding the wetland.

Ward 74 councillor, Belinda Echeozonjoku, expressed her dissatisfaction with the rehabilitation process’s delay, stating that she was disappointed with Johannesburg Water’s turnaround time in rehabilitating the park. She received feedback that Joburg Water had shifted the commencement of the rehabilitation to April 14 from the initial date of March 30. This delay will further hamper the adoption process, causing the park to continue deteriorating and not be in a position to be used by residents living in the area.
