Two Bundaberg Region parks will provide an all new experience for visitors after the installation of new play equipment.
Seagulls Park in Elliott Heads has opened to the public after undergoing an upgrade and features an all new fort and slide, double swing and a boat and surfboard rocker.
Local contractor Willplay installed the equipment as part of the Bundaberg Regional Council project.
Parks and Gardens portfolio spokesperson Cr Wayne Honor said Gorman Park in Burnett Heads was next in line on the upgrade list.
“The team just finished the soil work at Gorman Park, with the area now open to the community,” he said.
“The area provides new play equipment catered to children from two years old to 12 years old.”
Bundaberg Region parks promote liveability
Cr Honor said it was part of Council's commitment to the community to maintain the region's open spaces, ensuring residents and visitors alike had access to areas that promoted health, fitness and general wellbeing.
“Having plenty of areas of recreation in our region is such an important part of keeping our community healthy and thriving,” he said.
“Open spaces are an important contributor to our quality of life and not only benefit our environment, they also provide a place for community groups and organisations to gather, families and friends to catch up, as well as promote tourism and liveability.
“These two park upgrades are sure to be a popular rest spot for families and an all new experience for children to let off some steam and take part in some imaginative fun.”
