Due to significant storm events in October this year, a number of shade sails at Volcano Park Playground, Garvey Park, Centenary Park and Jack Ring Park were damaged in strong winds. These shade sails were removed so repairs could be undertaken, and new sails for Volcano Park Playground were required to be manufactured.
On Monday 27 November the City was contacted by our contractor and advised that they had experienced a significant fire at their factory premises in Wangara. This fire destroyed most of their stock and their fabrication facilities. They are currently going through the process of putting in place alternative arrangements to complete the sail orders they have and will advise the City when they can confirm an expected timeframe.
Due to the fire the City has been unable to install the sails by their planned date but hope to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
