Parks and reserves users to have their say
  • Tuesday 07 July 2015

Sunshine Coast residents and visitors will give their views on the region’s public parks and environmental reserves when Council conducts a “Parkcheck” survey starting this week.

From July 9-16, brief surveys will conducted at random in a selection of the Coast’s parks and reserves, allowing almost 300 people to have their say.

Park users who are chosen to take part will be able to give their insight into what they like, what they don’t and what they would like to see improved or added to make going to our green spaces an even more enjoyable experience.

The survey questions include “how often do you visit this park?”, “how long are you planning to stay?” and “what are you planning to do?”.

There’s also the chance to give the park’s facilities an overall rating from 1 to 5.

The surveys are conducted nationwide and enable organisations to establish, measure and record satisfaction levels of the users of parks and to benchmark these results against other councils.

The results also help Council to make informed decisions on future designs and embellishments.
