Three playgrounds around the region will soon be upgraded and the community is being asked to have its say on what type of play equipment should be included in the projects.
Bundaberg Regional Council's Parks and Gardens portfolio spokesperson Cr Wayne Honor said the current equipment at the playgrounds had reached the end of its life and would be updated as part of Council's asset renewal program.
“These small playgrounds are featured at George Campbell Park in Thabeban, McCarthy Street Park and Mikkelson Park in Avenell Heights,” he said.
“The replacement of this equipment will ensure that these parks support the recreation needs of the surrounding community while providing a fun space for families.
“In order for Council to achieve this goal, we need your feedback on the type of equipment you would like to see in these areas.”
Cr Honor said a survey was currently available for residents to express their thoughts on each of the small local parks.
“The survey allows for the opportunity to choose what elements you would most like to see featured in each playground, from swings to nature play, balancing equipment and more,” he said.
“These small neighbourhood parks are already a great spot for families to meet and for children to let off some steam and these upgrades will ensure the areas are well-maintained for years to come.”
Cr Honor said the survey would be available to participate in throughout the month of September.
“Then, from February to June 2022 Council will remove the existing playground before installing the new equipment in these three spaces.”
