The Gin Gin Recreation Reserve has officially opened to the community following four months of construction to the popular rest area.
Planned works included a new toilet block, car park facilities and pathways to provide visitors to the site updated facilities to enjoy.
Divisional representative Cr Wayne Honor said a new entryway into the reserve created easy accessibility for visitors.
“This improved vehicle access to the car park, which is now located in a cul-de-sac with formalised angle parking,” he said.
“Features of the upgrade include two cubicle disability compliant toilets and a pedestrian pathway for connectivity to the barbecue area and playground area.
“There is a viewing platform with seating at the skate bowl to watch the action under the comfort of existing shade sails.”
Cr Honor said the upgrade was part of Council's commitment to ensuring community access to physical activity opportunities and plenty of parks and open spaces to enjoy.
“Spending time outdoors is linked to positive health outcomes for communities and parks play a major role in providing a space of enjoyment for people of all ages and abilities,” he said.
“I am thrilled residents are now able to access Gin Gin Recreation Reserve and all of its great new features.”
The upgrade is a joint initiative of Bundaberg Regional Council and the Queensland Government.
