This was a project for young people to come up with alternatives to combat graffiti in our community and how to update the area. This was a combined project with the Department of Justice, the High School and the Council.
One side of the walkway has been completed with an iron sculpture of 30 metres. The sculpture wall was designed by the students and produced by Newman’s Engineering. The next phase was to do some planting against the next fence and to make it pleasant to look at. The final stage will be a mural on the concrete wall that faces the reserve.
What a change!!!!This change is a beautiful new sight for Dargaville's Gordon Street Reserve. Council has been collaborating with Dargaville High School students and Ministry of Justice to clean up Dargaville of its graffitti.
Dargaville High School students started working on the Gordon Street Reserve in 2005 as a science project and in 2010 Council and Dargaville High School students collaborated with Ministry of Justice and started the anti-graffitti programme, this is what has resulted in hard work and determination.
