Upgrade for Headland Park

Headland Park on North Stradbroke Island is set to receive a $500,000 upgrade.

Redland City division two Councillor Craig Ogilvie said the project would enhance Stradbroke’s existing appeal.

“The project will include new barbeque and picnic facilities, which will give residents and visitors even more to enjoy about the area.

“The natural layout of the area will also be used to create an amphitheatre including a platform and seating area that can be used for weddings and other ceremonies.

“Six new formalised car-parks will be constructed along with a designated over-flow car parking area that can accommodate further car–parking.

“Access to the popular North Gorge Walk will be enhanced as part of the project, which also allows for new playground equipment which is expected to be installed in the future.

“The project has been informed by consultation conducted in 2010, which showed residents wanted upgrades to the park.”

The project is expected to be completed by the end of August weather permitting and while there will be some minor disruptions to vehicle access to the area, pedestrian access will be maintained throughout the project.
