A new park for Burnett Heads was last week opened by Bundaberg Regional Council, providing even more recreational spaces for the community to enjoy.
Burnett Shores Park, on Avalon Street Burnett Heads, features a new playground, shelter with picnic table and access pathways.
Divisional Representative Cr Tanya McLoughlin said the park would be a welcomed addition to the coastal area.
“Providing facilities are important to me as a local councillor as I believe we must provide lifestyle infrastructure to support our growing communities,” Cr McLoughlin said.
At 3,600 square metres, the Burnett Shores Park site allows space for both a playground and an open grass kick-about area, in addition to a cantilever shelter with seating and a picnic table.
The playground includes a multideck with two slides, climbing equipment, double swing and spring rocker, supplied by local Bundaberg business Willplay.
The area has seen a growing need for a park with playground, with new houses built nearby.
“It’s great that the Burnett Shores Park includes a playground and shelter as I know many local families have been hoping for a park that would provide fun and safe play options for children,” Cr McLoughlin said.
“It really is a fantastic community park and I am pleased to see it finished for our community.”
