Have your say at a Community Day in Bailey Road Park, Birkdale – Saturday 13 May

Information about a new toilet for Bailey Road Park, Birkdale, and coastal erosion will be discussed at a community day to be held on Saturday 13 May at the park from 10am to 2pm.

Division 8 Councillor Tracey Huges, who is hosting the day, said residents would also be able to speak with her on the day about any other local projects or issues such as traffic management.

Cr Huges said there would be a free sausage sizzle, children’s activities and a free exercise class led by a qualified personal trainer at 10.30am, to show people how to make the best use of the exercise equipment in the park.

“I’m very keen to hear what people have to say about a range of issues, including the new amenities for the park as well as coastal erosion,” Cr Huges said.

A small structure containing one unisex toilet has been flagged for the area in Council’s Open Space Strategy following customer requests and approaches to Cr Huges.

“I’ve had people ask me for a toilet in the park, as many children and adults use it for recreation and the nearest public toilet is kilometres away,” she said.

“This community day will give residents the chance to provide feedback on possible locations for the toilet.”
