Cr McKay Mooloolah Recreational Park
  • Friday 03 August 2018
It is great to see that the footpath is completed. The next project will be the play equipment. I appreciate any support to keep vigilant to protect our new facilities and what the community has worked so hard to achieve. Council is scheduling works to replace sections of deteriorated pathway along King Road, Mooloolah. The pathway along King Road will be upgraded to 2m wide. This is one of many projects funded through council’s $370 million Capital Works Program this financial year. The works are scheduled to be undertaken during the Queensland September school holidays and work is now scheduled to start the week beginning 24 September. Completion is expected within two weeks (weather dependent). Congratulations Mooloolah State School on your great fund raiser – the Mooloolah Rodeo. The Chinese students I had with me on the evening thoroughly enjoyed it and then enjoyed their train ride back to Nambour! There will not be an informal breakfast meeting in September. Hope to see you in October.

Palmwoods off-leash dog park
The much awaited dog facility was officially opened last weekend.  It was wonderful to see so many people making use of this space, and it seems to be a big hit with local pooches.  
Thousands of trees planted for National Tree Day
Hundreds of hands joined together to plant 4500 native trees, shrubs and sedges in our local environment reserves for National Tree Day on Sunday (July 29). It was encouraging to see so many people volunteer their time to support Australia’s biggest tree planting event.
