After a new coat of paint and new shade sails the popular Bargara Turtle Park makeover is now complete and the playground has reopened in time for the Milbi Festival.
Bundaberg Regional Council parks and gardens portfolio spokesman Cr Wayne Honor said the refurbishment had finished within schedule and included the installation of new turf and new shade sail fabric.
“The popular turtle park is a much-loved family attraction at Bargara and it's wonderful to have the refurbishment completed in time for the pre-Milbi Festival event of welcoming the turtles,” Cr Honor said.
“Repairs started after the busy school holiday period and has finished in time for the inaugural Milbi Festival.”
Cr Honor said the Bargara Turtle Park play equipment had been repainted in its existing colours and was now very eye-catching and helped to improve the area.
“Repairs to the permanent soft-fall around the playground was also carried out,” he said.
“They also repaired and replaced the irrigation infrastructure that had reached the end of its lifespan.”
There will be orange bunting temporarily left in place on the coastal edge of the Turtle Playground to allow for soil that has been placed there to stabilise.
The playground was reopened in time for the pre-Milbi Festival event of welcoming the turtles on Tuesday, 12 November at 5.30pm at Bargara on The Esplanade.
