Communtiy Projects


While building this website we realized that we have many people making a difference in our community on our behalf. Take a look and contact them should you wish to get involved or assist. If you have a project which you feel should be on this site, please send us the details via email projects@parkdene.co.za . Please note this is handled on a volunteer basis so we will upload your requests as soon as possible.

TENNIS COURTS/TENNIS CLUB PREMISES:


For some time now the Tennis Courts have been neglected and have become an eyesore. Gerrie Wolmarans & Tony Lubbe have taken up the baton and are working to best fix up this property and the facilities. They are in the process of registering an NPO and a constitution has been approved by the interim committee. The Park is now named the Parkdene Sports & Recreation Club. They would like to make it available to the community for functions, kiddie’s parties and group meetings, while expecting a contribution towards maintenance, salaries and council rates.
Current Status: in progress

A COMMUNITY CONNECTED:


In today’s society with high walls and electric fences, we are unaware of the resources and needs directly on our door step. For this reason the Pardene.co.za website was initiated and the plan is to build a community through the website. By using the website to connect the residents of the suburb we become a community and have a much stronger voice. Although not an actual entity, but rather a facilitator to merely bring us all together to achieve better results for our community.
Current Status: Active (look out for our banners to find out more)
Expected Completion: Mid December
