One of the region’s most popular recreation areas has received a makeover, with the latest upgrade to the Coastal Pathway and surrounding park along Mooloolaba Spit now completed.
Division 4 Councillor Chris Thompson said the upgrade was the fifth stage of foreshore improvements along the Spit.
“The latest upgrade, east from Urunga Esplanade, included widening and realigning the pathway, installation of new lighting and park furniture, and landscaping,” Cr Thompson said.
“This recreation area looks fantastic, is much more functional, and is safer and smoother for the many people who walk, jog and cycle along the Spit.
“Mooloolaba is one of many communities across the region benefiting from projects like this – Council is delivering numerous park and recreation upgrades this financial year as part of its $111 million Capital Works Program.”
The pathway at Urunga Esplanade is part of the Coastal Pathway, Council’s longest shared pathway, which stretches from Pelican Waters to Coolum and provides a scenic route connecting beaches, parks and leisure areas. Maps of the pathway are available on Council’s website.
