There's plenty of action happening around local parks and open spaces with new fitness equipment, toilet cubicles, pathways and more being added to help maintain these vibrant natural areas.

Banksia Park in Woodgate is one area undergoing significant upgrades, including the recent installation of two new shelters and an accessible barbecue.

Next month, 10 new pieces of fitness equipment that provide 13 different cardio and strength-based activities will be installed.

The construction of new pathways and a carpark will follow.

Portfolio spokesperson for Natural Resources and Environment Cr Jason Bartels said Bundaberg Regional Council remained steadfast in its commitment to maintaining parks and playgrounds, not only for the benefit of the environment but also for the community.

“This dedication to enhancing our open spaces contributes to better liveability, allowing families and friends to come together, enjoy the outdoors and lead healthier lifestyles,” he said.
