The plants have started to go in as the final touches are added to the WAG Apex Waterfall in the lead up to the official launch on November 30.
The plants have started to go in as the final touches are added to the WAG Apex Waterfall in the lead up to the official launch on November 30.

More than 130 plants are currently being nurtured at the WAG Apex Waterfall in Central Park.

In the lead up to the official opening of the waterfall on Thursday November 30 at 6pm, Wingham Advancement Group volunteers have been digging in an array of hardy aromatic herbs.

Daily watering is helping the little plants take hold, helped along nicely by rainfall.

“They’ve just gone boom,” Allen Valentine, president of WAG said.

“I’m truly amazed at how some are taking off, it gladdens the heart.”

Invitations have been sent to community groups, former Apexians and local schools for the official launch of the waterfall.

The wider community is also invited to attend and bring a chair.

Mayor David West will welcome one and all to the ceremony and Allen will give a speech on the history of Apex.

The waterfall will also be officially switched on although visitors to Central Park will know the water is already unofficially flowing.

Those that have taken an early morning sojourn to the park may have already discovered the “pulse.”

Allen suggests the best time to visit is in the morning after the school children are all tucked away in their classrooms and things are nice and quiet.

“It’s very pleasant,” promised Allen.

“The waterfall is for everyone’s enjoyment to look at and listen to.”
