Council parks get upgrade

Tweed Shire Council is currently working through a park renewal program to ensure park equipment complies with today's standards and community expectations. Old Fingal Head Boat Harbour is the latest in a series of parks to be refurbished along the coast, targeting facilities which are popular among Tweed residents and visitors.

The Fingal Head upgrade enhanced community access, featuring new barbecues, shaded seating and play equipment, and capitalising on the harbour's beautiful views up and down the Tweed River.

Other recently refurbished parks include Ambrose Brown Park at Pottsville, Jack Bayliss Park at north Kingscliff, Quota Park at Tweed Heads West and Sweetnam Park at Uki.

The parks at Fingal Head, Ambrose Brown and Jack Bayliss received funding through the Australian Government, which supplemented funding from Tweed Shire Council.

Community comment was recently sought on plans to upgrade the iconic park adjacent to Cudgera Creek at Hastings Point as part of the park renewal program.
