Bundaberg Regional Council has upgraded the play equipment at the War Nurses Memorial Park to enhance the area and provide even more opportunity for recreation.
Parks and Gardens portfolio spokesperson Cr Wayne Honor said construction and installation of the new equipment was recently completed.
“Local company Willplay were contracted to take on the works which included the installation of a fort,” he said.
“The fort includes a slide, rope mattress, corner store and a climbing wall and is perfect for a range of ages, from toddlers up to primary school children.”
Cr Honor said the upgrade would benefit many residents who use the centrally located playground as an area of rest and recreation.
“Situated just near Bundaberg Hospital, this area is often utilised by staff as well as visiting families,” he said.
“The new playground not only enhances the space but it also provides new and exciting equipment for children to explore.”
Cr Honor said the upgrade was part of Bundaberg Regional Council's commitment in providing well-maintained areas for the community to enjoy.
“It’s important to maintain a network of quality parks and open spaces that promote community health and wellbeing,” he said.
“Not only do parks provide a space to relax and unwind, but they are also great areas for families and create the perfect opportunity to take part in physical activity while having fun.
“This latest upgrade is one of many that Council has undertaken or is planning to undertake to local park areas this year.”
