It is estimated that around $130,000 to $150,000 is needed to repair Ratu Cakobau Park in Nausori.

This was revealed by the Minister for Local Government, Housing and Community Development, Premila Kumar during an interview in Lautoka on Thursday.

Ms Kumar had travelled to most of the affected areas in Viti Levu to look into the damage sustained after Tropical Cyclone Ana hit the country last week.

“I visited Ratu Cakobau Park, it is badly affected. It is not just the fence that went down but there is a lot more leakages as well as the seats are rotting and it needs replacement,” said Ms Kumar.

She said the council will be talking to various organisations particularly sporting bodies if they could assist them. They will also be talking to the banks and finding out means of getting the park fixed.

“The repair works for Ratu Cakobau Park need to be done quickly,” she said.

“We know that Fiji is a sport loving nation and people enjoy their sports and there are not too many venues around, particularly between Nasinu and Nausori. People rely on Cakobau Park for all their sporting activities,” she added.
