The ANZAC spirit is growing in Buderim Village Park… literally! It was with much pleasure last Friday I attended the official unveiling of an Aleppo Pine tree at the popular park and dedication from Father Jeremy Graves of St Marks Anglican Church.
This tree, grown from a cone brought back from Gallipoli by an Australian soldier after World War I, symbolises the ‘Lone Pine’ that was situated near Australian and New Zealand trenches at ANZAC Cove.
A special wall has been constructed alongside the tree and a plaque will be installed to outline its significance.
Residents will also be pleased to hear the fences are now down following completion of stage 2 and 3 works and the park is now open to explore, enjoy, relax or play. Stage 2 and 3 works included construction of the village green, the upper and lower promenade pathways, tree planting, new gardens, revegetation to the escarpment edge, seating, irrigation, underground water harvesting tanks, drainage and electrical infrastructure.
This beautiful district level park provides a green, open and active space for locals and visitors to Buderim to enjoy well into the future.
Councillor catch up
Interested in hearing further information about local projects and developments or have some views to share? Maybe just want an opportunity to come and meet the local person who represents your Division 7?
Then please head to the Old Buderim Post Office, Burnett Street on Friday, October 24. I’m there on the fourth Friday of every month from 10am – midday to catch up with locals.
