Action sports park for Pellsrus

09 March 2018

Work has started on an action sport park at Pellsrus in Jeffreys Bay. 

Kouga Mayor Elza van Lingen said the sport park would be located behind the Pellsrus Community Hall.  

"A contractor has been appointed and has started clearing the site," she said. "We expect the work to be completed by June."  

The park will include a mini soccer field, outdoor gym equipment, a children's play area and amphitheatre. 

It is being built at a cost of R2,4-million, funded through the Municipal Infrastructure Grant (MIG) allocation for sport facilities.

Van Lingen said the municipality would also be upgrading the Weston Sportsfield this year.

"While health is not a core function of local government, we do have a role to play," she said in the State of the Municipality Address (Soma) last week.

"By making sport facilities available to communities, we hope to encourage a healthy lifestyle among young and old."
