Jack Morgan Park transformed
The latest stage of one of council’s most important Coolum projects is now complete. Jack Morgan Park has now been transformed into a vibrant and relaxing recreation area with a variety of different spaces within the park for families to enjoy. New features include a table tennis table, new arbour, public art lighting projections, plenty of space with electricity and lighting to allow for future markets, community events, and music and entertainment opportunities. This upgrade has strengthened Jack Morgan Park’s position as the civic heart of Coolum and has provided an alternative to the popular Tickle Park.
New shelter at Coolum Beach Holiday Park
Work is underway now on a new shelter at Coolum Beach Holiday Park. The shelter will serve as a camp kitchen, with cooking facilities included and plenty of space for dining and other undercover activities. The shelter is located next to an existing shelter and the amenities block. Construction will pause over the September holidays and is due to be completed before the summer school holidays.
Another first for local government
It was exciting to be a part of council’s launch for its latest region building project, the international broadband submarine cable. Every time you like something on Facebook, search Google or make an international phone call, you’re using a submarine cable. 95 to 99 per cent of Australia’s internet needs are serviced by a limited number of undersea cables and the introduction of council’s cable has the potential to drive down prices and create a more efficient data environment.
