Redland City Council is planning an exciting upgrade for the popular Headland Park at Point Lookout (Mulumba).
Mayor Karen Williams said the upgrade would bring a new lease of life to the popular park.
“Next year will see some fabulous improvements in this wonderful park,” she said.
“A new play space with a dual-slide climbing unit, nest swing, spring rocker and shell cubby, themed to reflect local cultural connections and Minjerribah’s spectacular marine environment will be built on the larger clearing, closer to the amenities block.
“In the new play space we’ll also see picnic facilities including a shelter, table, seating and a barbecue, with connecting paths helping ensure this beautiful new community space is accessible for all.”
To make way for another shelter with a table and seating nearer the bus stop, ageing play equipment will soon be removed.
“Importantly, the 2022 upgrade will also include the sealing of the adjacent carpark to provide more formalised parking spaces and additional protection for environmental values,” Cr Williams said.
Division 2 Councillor Peter Mitchell said the upgrade would provide a community space for everyone.
“Headland Park is central to many of the activities locals and visitors to Minjerribah enjoy,” he said.
“It provides access to the recently reopened Gorge Walk and pedestrian connectivity to two of the island’s most popular beaches.
“The large, grassy, space has long been a go-to spot for picnickers and people enjoying gelati or fish and chips from the nearby cafes.
“The improvements next year will make the park an even more attractive recreation space now and into the future.”
