Families will have more space to sit back and relax while the kids enjoy Boreham Park once a double shelter and barbecue is constructed in the area.
Bundaberg Regional Council's divisional representative Cr John Learmonth said the Stage Two works were following on from the recent unveiling of new equipment at the popular playground.
“The new double shelter will provide another great spot for families to set up in the shade with the added bonus of enjoying a snag or two using the new barbecue facilities,” he said.
“The works will also include the construction of a drinking fountain and a pathway to connect the shelter to the rest of the park.”
Cr Learmonth said the upgraded playground was opened in June and community feedback had been extremely positive.
“This project has been something the community has been calling for and I am so pleased to hear all of the positivity about how fantastic the playground is,” he said.
“Families are flocking to Boreham Park every weekend and are thoroughly enjoying the new equipment and amenities on offer.
“This next stage of the upgrade will carry on with the wonderful transformation of the area.”
Stage Two of the Boreham Park upgrade is expected to be completed by the end of October, weather permitting.
Council will pause work during the September school holidays and start again when school resumes.
The Boreham Park playground upgrade was a joint initiative of Bundaberg Regional Council and the Queensland Government.
The first stage of the upgrade works, featuring a play area with zero depth water play and an adventure tower, was officially opened in June 2021.
