The iconic playground at Moffat Beach Park is being upgraded with timber play elements and the community is invited to have their say on two concepts before June 27.
Division 2 Councillor Tim Dwyer said the playground needed to be replaced as it required ongoing maintenance, the timber footings had deteriorated, and it could no longer be maintained safely.
“The playground has reached a point where it is much safer and more cost-effective to replace it, as happens with many of our older infrastructure assets,” Cr Dwyer said.
“The new playground, in keeping with the area's natural character, will have similar timber features to the current one.
"Both of the concepts are designed to work around and protect the much-loved fig tree.
“We acknowledge how valuable the Moffat Beach playground is to the Sunshine Coast community and we’re keen to gather feedback on the concept plans.
“Community feedback will be taken into consideration when finalising the parks design."
View the concept designs at:
• council's website
• Caloundra Library
• Moffat Beach Park on 18 June at 10am-11.30am, when council staff and Cr Dwyer will be on site to discuss the upgrade and concepts with the community.
Feedback can be provided by emailing ParksCapitalWorks@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au before June 27.
