Cr Connolly - Alex Skate and BMX Park redesign
  • Thursday 02 June 2016

I really enjoyed joining the first round of community consultation to discuss future improvements for the Alex Skate and BMX Park.  Lots of enthusiasm and some great ideas were generated and council also received a number of online submissions.  The feedback will now be considered by council’s specialised team, including experienced skate park designers, to ensure the concept design for the new Alex skate park is modern and innovative.  The draft design will be presented to the community for further feedback in late 2016.  Construction is expected to start in April 2017.

Churinga park shelter replacement

Construction has commenced at Churinga Park to replace one of the remaining old picnic shelters on the headland. The upgrade will complete by the end of June.

Wallabies to return to Sunshine Coast Stadium

The Qantas Wallabies will return to their home away from home again in 2016 with a week-long camp confirmed on the Sunshine Coast from May 30 to June 3. The Rugby World Cup runners-up will be based at Sunshine Coast Stadium as they prepare for the three-match Cook Cup series against England which gets underway at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on Saturday, June 11.

This is an exciting opportunity for the Sunshine Coast region—and for their passionate supporters!
