In 2010, council purchased a 3.4 hectare piece of land on the corner of Church and King Streets, Buderim, to develop into a park.
The vision for the new park is for it to be a place of nature, recreation and to be enjoyed by everyone.
The staged construction of Buderim Village Park is underway. Construction of stage four is now complete with future stages to occur in upcoming financial years (subject to funding).
Stage four comprised:
- pathway lighting to the upper promenade path
- pathway construction
Stage four was jointly funded by council and the Queensland Government.
The 2015 Anzac Day Dawn Service was held at Buderim Village Park. Council in partnership with the BWMCA Anzac Day sub-committee were successful in receiving a Queensland Anzac Centenary Grant by the Queensland Government. The project will comprise:
- planting of an Aleppo Pine, a decedent of the Gallipoli Lone Pine, within the park
- construction of a low wall with commemorative signage
- installation of flag pole sleeves
- event power for the service.

Where to from here
The development of the park will occur in a number of stages over several years. The rate and extent each year will be subject to securing funding for future stages.
Council will use the landscape concept plan to apply for additional funding from various sources and agencies.
Updates on the implementation of the landscape concept plan will be available on this website.
Council developed a landscape concept plan in 2011. This open space is suitable for families, friends and individuals to enjoy the outdoors.
Some of the key components of the landscape plan include:
- a village green
- a large kick-about area
- internal paths
- various plantings
- viewing terraces
- children's play area
- BBQ areas
- multi-functional community events space
- village square
- parking for park users.
In early 2010, council purchased the parcel of land to develop the land into a district-level recreation park.
A district-level park provides a greater range of spaces than can normally be put in local parks, including:
- more diverse play spaces
- picnic and social spaces
- kick-about areas
- community gatherings / events
- opportunities for art and artistic expression
- access to natural bushland areas or link to a recreation trail or pathway networks.
Council selected the site as it met the standard requirement of a district recreation park.
Characteristics of the site include:
- central location in Buderim
- large, flat, open space - this is currently not provided on Buderim Mountain
- close proximity to:
- art and craft centre
- Buderim War Memorial Hall
- Buderim Performing Arts
- Buderim Mountain Primary School
- the ability to provide the community with a valuable piece of open space.
In 2010, council invited the community to share ideas and help shape the vision for Buderim Village Park. A combination of community engagement activities were undertaken including a questionnaire, Meet us on the Street and stakeholder interviews.
A draft landscape concept was developed based on the community's vision for the park. The draft landscape concept plan was then reviewed by the community.
