This area is known as the &quot;Sun Path&quot;, set up by the Friends of the Rosebank and Mowbray Green Belt (FROG). It is a beautiful stretch along the Liesbeek, providing a fantastic piece of indigenous vegetation in a formerly grassy and underused path. <br />

Work parties on the first Saturday morning of every month, which is usually cleaning up along the river, or weeding and tending the area we&#039;ve planted up along the &quot;Sun Path&quot;, along the canal between Gordon&#039;s Gym and KayDee Educare Centre. The planting replaces the grass which used to grow in that section, and consists of colourful, drought-hardy,mostly indigenous plants, as well as vegetables, which are there for the benefit of the community - anyone is welcome to take what they need. The Sun Path itself was laid with ward allocation funding from the City, at the request of FROG. We set up a row of compost bins outside the back wall of KayDee&#039;s to collect leaf litter in the neigbourhood. A Spring Market was held one year on the Village Green, with community members selling produce they had made themselves.
