Fraser Coast residents are being encouraged to have their say on options for a playground upgrade at the popular ESA Park on the Esplanade at Point Vernon.
Cr David Lewis said the ESA Park playground was popular for family gatherings and children’s parties as parents and grandparents can relax as their children play.
“ESA Park is named after ESA Foundation which is dedicated to the promotion of continuing education and to altruistic activities that make a positive difference in the world community,” he said.
“The park contains a playground, barbecue and toilet facilities and easy access to the beach and tidal rock pools.
“Due to the popularity of the playground and its exposure to the ocean, the equipment now requires an upgrade.
“As part of the upgrade some of the play equipment will be removed and replaced with something new.
“Council wants residents to help choose the replacement equipment. We have two design options and would like to hear your feedback.”To have your say on the two options, click on the survey link – https://frasercoast.engagementhub.com.au/parks-open-spaces-projects
The equipment that is in good condition that will remain includes the shade structures, climbing net and navigator twirler.
Council plans to replace the swing set, rockers, play panels and the early childhood small combo play unit and slide.
The survey is open now and closes on 10 January 2022.
In October Council undertook a $44,000 project to renovate the timber park shelters on either side of the barbecues in ESA Park and is currently replacing the old shelter in the Gables Park at Point Vernon.
The project included the replacement of rooves, timber treatment and new electrical fittings and was undertaken by Council’s Building Services carpenters.
