Cr Connolly - La Balsa Park Master Plan

La Balsa Park Master Plan

I enjoyed meeting with local residents recently to discuss the master plan for this popular area. Planned improvements include upgraded lighting to the boat ramp and a renewal of the playground, picnic facilities and celebration area. I look forward to working closely with the community and council officers as these improvements get underway.

Kawana Beach amenities upgrade

Beachgoers are sure to appreciate the convenience of the new amenities block under construction near the surf club.  The existing run-down toilet block will be decommissioned and turned in to more useful open green space

Double Bay Beach BBQ replacement

It is great to see Parrearra visitors and residents enjoying the two new double BBQs located near the waterside at Double Bay Beach.  The old facilities were recently replaced to rejuvenate this space.

Emerald Woods pathway renewal

Sections of the pathway at Mooloolaba’s Emerald Woods Environmental Park will be removed and replaced during August.  Access to some properties may be affected for short durations during construction and council officers will work with affected residents to minimise disruption.

It is an exciting time and there are a great many projects underway across division 4.  I aim to keep you updated through these columns as well as on Facebook (Cr John Connolly - Division 4) and Twitter @voteconnolly or subscribe to my eNewsletter at  As your representative on council, I would like to hear of any projects or topics that you would like to discuss.
