WHAT ARE THEY DOING TO OUR FOREST?

Most of you know that I live next to a forest. The locals call it Daisy Hill Forest but its real name is Daisy Hill Conservation Park. My friends and I walk there every morning except weekends. Some months ago when I entered the forest I came across trucks and fences stopping us from entering certain parts of the forest, mainly the picnic area. What are they doing to our forest??


Then all was revealed. The government has provided funds for an upgrade to the park. 

The picnic area will have new facilities such as shelters, BBQ's, toilet blocks and pathways.

We were not too happy about our usual walking paths being blocked off but we made a new route.

Now the first section of work is complete. The ring road for cars has been resealed and the park paths have been concreted like this one.

New shelters and BBQ's

New facilities

New activities for children. Turn the handle to guess the sounds of the wildlife.



So the picnic area has been spruced up and our bush tracks have new signs but luckily there are still acres and acres of untouched forest.

  1. I was afraid when I read the title that they were logging your forest. Nice that someone thought sprucing up was in order. When is the picnic happening there?

  3. It's really beautiful and they did a really good job of doing it and I always appreciate facilities like that but I do prefer at the other way. I like Untouched by human hands Forest vest. Our favorite preserve they did this very same thing to it and we loved it much more before they improved it. That said is still a beautiful place to walk

  4. I wasn't too sure until I saw your last sentence. So I feel happy now that you have better facilities as well as acres of forest to walk through.

  7. It's a lovely spot and a formal picnic spot is great to have, as well as a nice play area for the children. So glad though that there's a lot of untouched places too. Can imagine your thoughts when you first saw the trucks there! Cheers :D)

  8. You live next to a very beautiful forest. What a bonus! I like the improvements so that more people can enjoy the park.

  9. Oh that wasn't as bad as I feared it was going to be! As long as they leave some of it wild (I personally really like boardwalks, as our days of 'bushwhacking' have passed). But they need to leave some open wild for birds and animals.

  10. That looks really a nice area and you still have plenty of walking space in the bush..many would give an eye tooth to have that at their doorstep.

  11. Great improvements to your beautiful Conservation park. When I read the title I was hoping they weren't going to cut down trees or something awful...

  13. How awesome! I was afraid it would be a negative reason for the trucks and such! The interactive places for kids is so clever!

  15. I am slowly getting envious ! You live in such beautiful surroundings ! And walking every morning in this wood must be very nice !

  16. I can well image the concern you and your friends had when you saw the path blocked on your usual walk, Diane. Nice to know that the reason was for improvements although I must confess that the paved walkway is not as appealing to me, How do you feel about it? The facilities look very nice and I'm sure will get more use. You do indeed live in a beautiful area.

  17. That's important work they do ! I love the totems in the wood !

  18. It's good that there are still lots of unimproved wilder areas for you to ramble through but it's also good to have the improvements. I can imagine that those paths could be a boon to some people who have to use mobility scooters or are otherwise not fleet of foot.

  20. Those are some nice changes as long as they keep almost all of it wild for the wild critters.

  23. Alzheimer's illness is common in my family, I have been stressed at work for at least 16years suffered depression my thoughts were blocked. So I knew the need to keep a watch on it, that was when I began to walk several times a week, 2 miles a day and realized that was a positive thing, but it got to a point my whole body started getting weaker, I needed some help. I started up training, the trainer came to my hometown 5 times a week and he told me that would be able to help me. I agreed with him and was happy I finally found solution not until I woke up one day and couldn't walk. Tried out so many medications and diet but none of them was able to help me. In the process I knew about ZOMO, an herbal medicine for Alzheimer's disease, I followed the blog address shared; I curiously contacted him and got ZOMO. I didn’t want to be disabled at my old age, and was so hungry for more healthy days on earth. My recovery involved both medicine and diet. I never had any complications I experienced while on English medications why using ZOMO.
