Alex Skate Park on track
Skaters, BMX riders and scooter riders should get their wheels ready as the Alex Skate Park is scheduled for completion in November. The final design offers a modern and innovative skate park that includes many features the community asked for during consultation. I’d like to thank everyone for their patience during construction. I’m sure it will be worthwhile when we see the finished product. This project was funded through council’s Capital Works Program, which delivers a range of recreational projects for our community.

Viewing deck near Alex Surf Club
There will soon be a new viewing deck at Alexandra Headland, south of the surf club, near beach access 160. The new viewing area will be an extension to the existing promenade area and offer additional seating and views of Pt Cartwright and Mt Coolum. Council has developed a design for the viewing deck, which will conceal the existing stormwater outlet to increase the area’s visual appeal. The design is awaiting State Government approval, with work likely to begin in early 2018. 

Amenities block at Kawana Surf Club complete
I am pleased to advise the new amenities building south of Kawana Surf Club is now open to the public. The contractors did an excellent job creating a quality asset for the community. The building was well designed and took adjacent property owners’ view lines into consideration. It’s a great outcome for everyone involved.
