Cordalba residents and visitors will have a new area for activities when a sports ground, featuring a pump track, is constructed this year.
Divisional representative Cr Bill Trevor said the project was part of Council’s Parks Capital Works Program for 2019 – 2020 and would boost healthy lifestyle opportunities in the area.
“The upgrade has been identified to provide improved recreational facilities for children and teenagers within the local community,” he said.
“This project will ensure the park supports the recreational needs of the surrounding community and is in keeping with Council’s current infrastructure standards.”
While the project was still in the design phase, Cr Trevor said recreation facilities including a small play area and jump track would be featured at the sports ground on Cemetery Road, Cordalba.
“A multisport field with goal posts and a dirt jump track will be perfect for those adventurous kids,” he said.
“Design work also includes picnic tables, a playground for the 0 to 5 age group and shade trees throughout the area.”
Bundaberg Region Mayor Jack Dempsey said the sports ground would provide many families in the area with a new place to spend quality time together while promoting livability and a healthy lifestyle.
“This will be a fantastic addition for the Cordalba community and will occupy an open area that has, before now, been quite underutilised,” he said.
“It will help to engage the community in a healthier lifestyle and provide an area of recreation for families and friends to come together, to socialise and to have fun.
“At Council, we strive to bolster livability through our open spaces and always look to provide ways for the community to enjoy themselves in our beautiful outdoor areas.”
Construction of the new recreational facilities is scheduled to be completed before June, weather permitting.
