Naming of parks, places and community infrastructure

Sunshine Coast Council is the custodian of an expanding collection of parks and other infrastructure that, in many cases, is named in dedication to significant individuals, families, associations, historical objects or events.

Search the directory

Find out how the name of parks, places or community infrastructure came about by searching in the Names Origin Directory.

  • Please note that the inclusion of a park name in this directory does not imply official endorsement of the name by Sunshine Coast Council or any other authority.
