REPEAT: MULTI EVENT PASSES FOR 2016/7

The PRA has organised two vehicle passes for every home in Parkview/ Greenside East so that your cars (and you) can have vehicle access into the area for when it is closed for events. This is the last collection chance before Walk the Talk on 24 July.

Saturday 23 July – 9h00 to 12h30 (outside Parkview Spar) - (702 Walk the Talk is on the 24 July)*
 
The other alternative for you is to queue at Marks Park to fetch the day passes when events take place.  *If you are not a paid up PRA member you will be unable to obtain additional passes for tenants and children who have cars.  Fees can be paid on the day you collect or an EFT done in advance (First National Bank, Rosebank (253305), Current account – 50332119813).

GEORGE HAY PARK

If you or your domestic workers walk your dogs at the park, please pick up your dog poop. There are bags on the fence of the toilet block for this purpose.  Also please remember to keep your dogs on leads at all times, many of the adults and kids who frequent the park are scared of dogs.  If you want your dogs to go off lead, please rather walk them at Emmarentia Dam in the designated areas.
