- Wednesday 31 October 2018
It was a real pleasure to meet and announce the winners at the launch of the 2019 Heritage Calendar, held on Friday 26 October. The Heritage Calendar is produced to celebrate and showcase the unique cultural heritage of our region. This year, photos have been drawn from the private collections of six locals who were winners of the heritage calendar photo competition. As we move towards Christmas and you may have a loved one in the ‘hard to buy for’ category, why not consider including in the Architecture: Past and present 2019 cultural heritage calendar. The calendar is a showcase of both old and contemporary architecturally diverse, well-designed and historic buildings across the Sunshine Coast (my easy favourite is May – The Rustic Cabin in 1939). It is proudly supported by your council’s Cultural Heritage Levy. You can purchase a copy from council’s library branches and Customer Service Centres for only $6.
Your newest dog park opens
Residents of Landsborough and surrounds now have an additional dedicated area to exercise their four-legged companions, with the new fenced dog off-leash area on Caloundra Street now open. The park has opened and is equipped with a reasonable range of rural looking agility equipment such as rocks and natural elements to allow it to fit into a country town setting. There were a couple of adjustments made as we received feedback from early users but on the whole, users are delighted with it. Part of the important role of dog parks is to provide increasingly needed opportunities for owners to socialise and exercise their dogs, the Landsborough dog park also makes good use of an otherwise unused easement. I believe the dog park complements the excellent woodlands entry into the township of Landsborough and is also not a great distance from the incredibly popular all-abilities playground of Pioneer Park, which has recently received significant upgrades, so this area now offers an even better range of recreational opportunities. The dog park has two interconnected fenced areas, one catering for medium to large dogs and one more suited to small dogs. The project also included new car parking and extended walkways to provide easy access to the park. Do not wait any longer and come and try the new dog off-leash area!
