Community Voices: Concerns Over the Fate of Benoni Bunny Park

In the ongoing dialogue surrounding the Bunny Park, a letter shared with the Benoni City Times captures the community’s deep-seated affection for this local treasure and the apprehensions over its future. John Priestley’s missive, published on October 9, 2017, harnesses the spirit of consideration for a place that has been a source of joy and educational interaction for countless children across generations.

Reflecting on Changes

The letter begins with a poignant reflection on the park’s evolution, as the flourishing population of rabbits that once roamed freely has been curtailed to a regimented 50, a move brought forth by vigilant population control. “For a child,” John writes, “the tangible delight was in the chase and the playful attempt to offer nibbles to those endearing creatures—a simple pleasure now curbed.”

A Legacy in Limbo

Furthering the children’s connection to nature were the farm animals, living exhibits offering a tangible link to the rural world, an increasingly rare encounter in our urban surrounds. The park’s transformation, though marked by infrastructural enhancements, has given rise to a soul-stirring question: What will become of the Bunny Park, a place where the innocence of childhood once dovetailed with the wonders of the natural world?

Balancing Modernization with Mission

John acknowledges the council’s efforts to beautify and restore, yet he implores that the intrinsic essence of the Bunny Park should not be compromised. The underlying fear he voices is one that resonates with fellow park patrons—the looming possibility that the essence of the park might be surrendered to an alternate agenda, with concerns such as potential housing developments casting a shadow over the park’s scenic expanse.

A Collective Call to Preserve

The sentiment concludes with a call to action—a plea for community engagement and responsible stewardship that keeps the park’s foundational purpose intact. It is the collective hope that the park’s refurbishments serve to embolden, not diminish, the educational and entertaining experiences it was initially designed to provide.

As narrators of the Bunny Park’s history and its role within the community, we embrace John’s insight as a reminder that the park is more than a physical locale; it is a patchwork of memories and shared experiences that belong to every visitor, young and old.
