The power will be cut at Wilson Park from today and at various times over the next four weeks for a major electrical upgrade

The City of Whyalla advises that the power will be turned off at Wilson Park from today for an extended period to perform a major electrical upgrade.

The work is being done to accommodate the floodlights that will soon be constructed around the new tennis and basketball courts. Extra switchboards will also be put in to regulate other electrical requirements at the park.

Unfortunately the power may need to be cut intermittently over the next four weeks to complete this significant electrical upgrade. This means the barbecues will be out of action and the toilets will be unavailable at night at various times. Council apologises for this inconvenience.

The park and all other features are still open to the public. Council asks people to be aware of the electrical work being conducted and take heed of all signs and directions from contractors performing the work.

It is all part of an extensive upgrade for Wilson Park which has already seen new playground equipment, a new irrigation system for the freshly-laid grass and a stepped-seating area next to the tennis and basketball courts.

With fencing and line-marking also scheduled for the tennis and basketball courts, the next project will be a skate ramp at the town end of the recreational area.
