The community is being asked to provide feedback on the changes they would like to see come to fruition at a popular Woodgate recreational space.
As part of Council’s Parks Capital Works Program 2021 – 2022, funding has been allocated to develop a conceptual design to revitalise the main recreation space of Banksia Park.
Parks and Gardens portfolio spokesperson Cr Wayne Honor said Banksia Park was the largest recreational reserve in Woodgate.
“This area is a popular spot for residents and visitors alike and Council would like to revitalise the area for all to enjoy,” he said.
To start the process Cr Honor said Council was seeking feedback from the community on how the park was used and the types of facilities and recreational activities that would be beneficial in the area.
“An online survey will become available to the public on Saturday, 13 November on the Our Bundaberg Region website,” he said.
“There will also be an opportunity for the community to meet the project team working on the redevelopment and provide feedback at Banksia Park on Saturday, 20 November from 9 am to noon.”
Cr Honor said a first draft concept would be shared with the community through the Our Bundaberg Region website by the end of February before a final design is decided upon by the end of March next year.
“The concept design will focus on pathways, play equipment, landscaping and parks furniture,” he said.
This overall project will ensure the park supports the future recreation needs of the surrounding community and is in keeping with Council infrastructure standards.”
The Woodgate park upgrade community survey is now open and closes at midnight on Sunday 28 November 2021.
