Proposed Mackay parkland project revealed

A new wedding garden, playground shade shelter and additional car parks are only some of the features proposed in Sarina Parklandsís Field of Dreams Masterplan.

Now available for viewing on Mackay Regional Councilís website, the plan reflects councilís vision for the area for the next 10 years.

As part of the plan, an $80,000 playground, featuring a slide, monkey bars and activity panels was installed at the site the previous financial year.

Remaining elements of the plan will be rolled out by council as funding becomes available.

Other proposed works include the construction of new footpaths, an access road to the northwest of the parkland and a bus/vehicle turn-around area.

Created in collaboration with key stakeholders, residents and council representatives, the masterplan aims to revitalise the area and will enable visitors to navigate the precinct with ease.
