A popular beachside park is getting an overhaul, with renewed facilities and a brighter look.

Sunshnie Coast Council has started stage one upgrades works at Power Memorial Park in Mudjimba.

The park is already one of the most well attended in the region, because it has a number of access points to a patrolled beach, barbecues, shelters, picnic tables, and a shaded playground, which are across the street from local shops.

Councillor Taylor Bunnag said the works would make a great park even greater.

“I regularly visit Power Memorial Park with my young family, and I’m pleased we’ve started the staged works to improve this much-used space,” he said.

“It’s known as one of the best places to have a barbecue on the Coast and it certainly makes for a perfect day out.

“We’re investing more than $330,000 in stage one works, which include renewing the five shelters adjacent to the playground, with new roofing, barbecues and seating.

“I’m looking forward to seeing the artwork in the park: we’re painting the table tennis tables as well as the electrical switchboard cupboard.

“We are also widening the pathways and planting new shade trees to accompany landscaping works.

“I’m really pleased to see council also enhancing the lighting and accessibility to the park which is a necessary improvement to ensure all members of our community can access and enjoy the park.

“Thank you to Mudjimba locals and business owners for your patience as we deliver these new facilities for our whole community to enjoy.

“This is another great upgrade showcasing how we’re connecting and engaging with our communities to build a better future for everyone.”

Stage one works are expected to be completed by the end of July, weather permitting.

Council will start stage two of the park improvements, which will include upgrading the playground, after the September school holidays.

For stage two improvements, Sunshine Coast Council will partner with the fustralian government, which contributed $265,000 through its Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.
