Cr Connolly - La Balsa Park Master Plan

La Balsa Park Master Plan

Designs for stage 2 of the La Balsa Park improvements will soon be underway. Works include replacement of the wedding rotunda for which there will be community consultation for the design, a new seat near the central playground and line marking of the two existing car parks.   This will complement the recently completed widening of the footpath, drainage upgrades and new landscaping.  Some smart design work also resulted in an additional 8 new car parking bays.

IRONMAN 70.3 coming our way

Our fantastic beaches and sunny surrounds will be beamed around the world as over 3000 athletes representing 70 countries compete in the upcoming IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship. This event is estimated to contribute $8million to the local Sunshine Coast economy. To learn more about this world-class event, go to or phone the event hotline on 1300 761 384.

Meet our local beauties

In late winter and spring the Coast’s wildflowers are hard to miss. The Sunshine Coast Wildflower Festival from August 21 to September 3 is a great opportunity to get to know these local beauties a little better.  The festival program, which includes 16 guided walks between Bribie Island and Noosa, is available on council’s website.

I look forward to keeping you updated through these columns as well as on Facebook (Cr John Connolly - Division 4) and Twitter @voteconnolly or subscribe to my eNewsletter at  As your representative on council, please let me know of any projects or topics that you would like to hear more about.
