A revamped recreational space is now open to the community at Baldwin Swamp Environmental Park, providing a modern area to host gatherings, events and more.
The area's shelter shed, situated in the centre of the popular park, has been revitalised to include a whole new layout with a breezeway, kitchen facilities and more.
The modern area has been designed with full accessibility in mind and also features an accessible toilet, new lighting, new barbecue and storage room.
The works began earlier this year after Bundaberg Regional Council called for feedback from the community on how to make the space safer and more user-friendly.
Survey respondents highlighted the shelter shed was mostly used for group workshops, group functions (art, music and environmental groups), meetings and birthday parties.
The Baldwin Swamp Environmental Park shelter shed revamp was completed as part of Bundaberg Regional Council's 2022/2023 capital works budget.
The upgrade will ensure that the existing facility supports the future recreation needs of the surrounding community and is in keeping with Council’s infrastructure standards.
The facility is now available to hire and aims to:
- provide opportunities for the community to access areas for social and recreational use
- provide a fully accessible facility
- provide a modern environment for groups to meet
The Baldwin Swamp Shelter Shed upgrade is now complete, and the facility is open to the community and available for bookings.
To make a booking phone Council on 1300 883 699.
The facility is situated at the main entrance to Baldwin Swamp in Steindl Street.
