The Cordalba community is being invited to have a say on future plans to transform a recreational space into a play facility for children of all ages.
As part of Bundaberg Regional Council’s Capital Works Program 2021 – 2022 a concept design will be developed for new recreational facilities at Cordalba Park, off Queen Street.
Parks and Garden portfolio spokesperson Cr Wayne Honor said feedback from the local community had identified the need for more challenging play opportunities for older youth.
“We have heard the message from residents loud and clear and now we want to work together with the community to finetune what type of equipment should be utilised in this space for the benefit of our youth,” he said.
“From climbing walls to a multi-use games area, bike pump tracks or anything in between, we want to hear what would make the area thrive while keeping our young people entertained and participating in recreational activities.
“We are also happy to announce that plans to build a single-cubicle accessibility compliant toilet facility will also form part of this project.”
Cr Honor said as part of the consultation process a community session will be held at Cordalba Park on Thursday 9 June where residents could drop in anytime between 3 pm to 5 pm to find out more and fill in a survey.
“Council has also organised with Cordalba State School to speak to students about the project and we will have an online survey open until midnight on Sunday 19 June on the Our Bundaberg Region website,” he said.
“It is important to hear from residents to ensure the concept design is developed with community feedback in mind.
“Your input will help identify what recreational facilities are important to this area.”
The survey for the Cordalba Park masterplan is now live and residents are encouraged to have their say here.
