Parks staff and the combined Rotary clubs of Invercargill have in the past 12 years planted more than 250,000 native plants along the walkway and around Pleasure Bag Lagoon on the former refuse dump.

The project began in 2005 to mark the centennial of Rotary International and the completion on Sunday marked the Rotary Foundation’s centenary.
