The Delta Users Committee
DELTA USERS COMMITTEE
The Delta Users Committee came into being shortly before the World Summit on Sustainable Development held in Johannesburg in 2002 with the objective of encouraging greater usage of the park by the community. This followed years of neglect of the park by the City Council and the perception that the park was an undesirable place for walkers, joggers and cyclists.
To this end the committee implemented a monthly walk in the park and its surrounds. This walk still takes place and attracts upwards of 50 people from all over Greater Johannesburg. It is particularly popular with dog walkers.
The committee also provides a link between the community and Delta Environmental Centre, an NGO that is housed in the park and provides environmental education facilities to both learners and teachers. In addition, DEC works closely with Johannesburg City Parks on the management of the park, especially as it sees this facility as an outdoor classroom supporting its education offerings.
Recent enhancements in the park include
Other enhancements are planned and the DUCS will continue with its involvement in these issues.
