Cr Dickson said further development of the park would occur in stages over a number of years subject to available funding for future stages.
“Proposed works for future stages of Buderim Village Park include construction of viewing terraces, a children’s playground and installation of BBQ and picnic shelters,” he said.
“Stage one of this project involved demarcating an informal parking area for park users in Church Street and this will be formalised in future stages to accommodate approximately 30 car spaces.
“Public amenities including toilets, a village square and multi-functional performance area are also planned for future stages along with a continuation of park lighting, tree planting, garden beds and informal pathways.”
Stage four works are set to start in November and include installation of additional park lighting and pathways. The State Government has contributed $100,000 towards the $165,000 works via a Local Government Subsidy Infrastructure Grant.
