New playgrounds and park upgrades in 2023

 Boreham Park - Clown Swing 
park upgrades
The clown swing at Boreham Park was refurbished.

New playgrounds and park upgrades across the Bundaberg Region throughout 2023 have helped to enhance local areas while providing even more recreational spaces for the community to enjoy.

Two new playgrounds, Burnett Shores Park, Burnett Heads and Gin Gin Streetscape South Playground, were completed this year.

The upgraded facilities boast modern designs, incorporating innovative play structures that cater to various age groups.

With a focus on accessibility, these playgrounds aim to ensure that all children, regardless of abilities, can enjoy the recreational spaces.

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.

Located near the entrance to town the Gin Gin Streetscape Playground South upgrade will offer a varied play experience for both residents and visitors to the area.

Bundaberg Regional Council has also refurbished a number of pieces of play equipment, installed multiple new shade sails, and constructed and revitalised shelters throughout the region.
