AfriSam upgrades Community Park into a family-friendly haven

AfriSam recently completed a significant upgrade to the Hillary Community Park

Leading construction materials company, AfriSam, recently completed a significant upgrade to the Hillary Community Park in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, transforming it into a vibrant and family-friendly recreational space. This initiative is part of AfriSam's ongoing commitment to corporate social responsibility and enhancing the quality of life in the communities in which it operates.

The upgraded park now boasts a range of new amenities and features that cater to the diverse needs of families and individuals alike. AfriSam installed a sturdy fence around the park, ensuring the safety and security of visitors. In addition, the company undertook extensive garden maintenance, revitalising the park's green spaces and creating a serene environment for relaxation and leisure activities.

One of the highlights of the upgrade is the addition of picnic tables and chairs, providing families with a comfortable and inviting space to enjoy outdoor meals and gatherings. These new seating areas are strategically placed throughout the park, offering scenic views and fostering a sense of community engagement.

Recognising the importance of physical fitness, AfriSam also introduced a range of outdoor gym equipment to the park. These state-of-the-art facilities cater to individuals of all ages and fitness levels, encouraging active lifestyles and promoting overall wellbeing. The new equipment includes cardio machines, strength-training apparatus and stretching areas, enabling visitors to engage in a variety of exercises and workouts.

The company's commitment to children's wellbeing is evident in the expansion of the existing play area. AfriSam enhanced the playground with additional equipment, ensuring that children have a safe and enjoyable space in which to play and explore.

"We are thrilled to have been able to contribute to the transformation of the Hillary Community Park," said Senzi Mabaso, community development professional from AfriSam. "By creating a family-friendly environment and providing essential amenities, we hope to encourage outdoor activities, promote healthy lifestyles and strengthen the sense of community within Hillary."

The upgraded park is now open to the public, inviting residents from the surrounding areas to experience the enhanced facilities first-hand. AfriSam's investment in this project reflects the company's dedication to sustainable development and its commitment to making a positive impact on the communities in which it operates. This initiative has been made possible through the positive partnership the company has been built over the years with its stakeholders including The Department of Mineral Resources and Energy and the eThekwini municipality.
