Naish Park Duck Pond

Council is aware that a recent news story about the Naish Park duck pond sparked comments from some residents. But, we want to be clear that no decision has yet been made about removing the ducks or filling in the pond. Unfortunately, the quality of the pond water, the amount of duck excrement on paths and furniture, and the damage the ducks are doing to the grass has become a problem and a safety concern. The area is cleaned four times a year, but this is obviously not enough and any extra cleans would would cost about $500 a clean. A review of the district's parks is scheduled to begin in the next 12 months, when Council will look at all the options. However, before any decision is made about the future of the pond, the public will get a chance to have their say. At this stage it would be great if people could stop feeding the ducks to see if this reduces the problem. Thanks very much.
