A playground and park in Kepnock will soon be upgraded and Bundaberg Regional Council is seeking community feedback on the types of equipment needed in the area.
Laurisen Park on Scotton Street currently features play equipment that has reached the end of its life.
Parks and Gardens portfolio spokesperson Cr Wayne Honor said until the beginning of March, community members were being invited to have their say in a survey on what could be included in the upgrade.
“Not only will this space feature a new playground, the project also proposes to include new seating, a new picnic shelter, refurbishment of the existing basketball court and the widening of existing pathways,” he said.
“New shade trees will also be planted with some existing non-native trees to be removed.
“Council is asking the community to have their say on exactly what type of equipment and park features they would like to see included in the upgrade.”
Cr Honor said the project was part of Bundaberg Regional Council’s Parks Capital Works Program 2021 – 2022.
“The ongoing development and enhancement of parks, gardens and natural areas ensures residents and visitors enjoy an unsurpassed experience,” he said.
“In the past year Council has been working towards the upgrade and revitalisation of many parks and playground areas to ensure that we are supporting the recreational needs of the community.
“Some of these recently upgraded areas include Cordalba Park, South Head Parklands and Gin Gin Recreation Reserve.”
Community feedback for Laurisen Park will be sought until Sunday, 6 March and concept plans will be revised by April.
New upgrades will then be installed by the end of June 2022, weather permitting.
