Joyce`s Vision

Joyce Pearce`s vision of restoring the Sofala Footbridge was the main driving force behind this project.  

Joyce was responsible for raising the funds used to restore this bridge.

This park is dedicated to the memory of Joyce Pearce. 

Without her commitment this project would not have been possible.
