A prominent new community space is almost complete as the Mooloolaba foreshore gets a makeover.
The finishing touches are being put on the Northern Parkland for Stage One of the Mooloolaba Foreshore Revitalisation Project.
The works include a striking new boardwalk and viewing platform, linking Alexandra Headland to the Mooloolaba Esplanade.
Sunshine Coast Council Division 4 Councillor Joe Natoli said he was excited to see the project nearing completion.
“I’m thrilled our community will soon be able to enjoy full access to the Northern Parkland, including the open green space, public toilets, barbecue shelter, picnic tables and adventure playground just in time for the July school holidays,” he said.
“Council is creating these wonderful new community spaces for all to enjoy and access.
“The Mooloolaba foreshore is much loved by residents and visitors and the new Northern Parkland will be another feather in its cap.”
Works are now underway to complete the new public amenities, barbecue area, children’s playgrounds, shade sails, ocean view deck and gardens.
In addition to the new infrastructure, more than 120 new trees and 10,000 new shrubs and ground covers have been planted in the parkland to enhance the space and provide extra shade.

The Queensland Government invested $4.6 million into Stage 1 through the $50 million Unite and Recover Community Stimulus Package for South-East Queensland councils to stimulate economies and support jobs.
Sunshine Coast Council committed $11.5 million towards Stage 1.
The Mooloolaba Foreshore Revitalisation Project is set to have four stages, including the Northern Parklands, Central Meeting Place, Central Parklands and Southern Parkland.
“I want to thank everyone who provided feedback during the recent community engagement for the next stage of this important project, the Central Meeting Place,” Cr Natoli said.
“The survey results are now being collated and assessed and council will provide an update in due course.
“This feedback will help council determine how future works progress at the Mooloolaba foreshore, and there will be another chance for the community to provide input later this year.”
