Example of hoop sports activity for new Peregian Springs play space

The Peregian Springs community requested a new public area to help older children be active outdoors and now they are invited to have their say on four potential locations identified by council for a multi-purpose active play space.

The four sites, which vary in size and suitability for various recreation activities, have been shortlisted following evaluations of several locations. They are:

  • The Avenue Park, The Avenue (District Park)
  • Coolum Ridges Sports Complex, Ridgeview Drive – adjacent to the Ridges Sports Complex car park (District Sports Ground)
  • Nottingham Lane Park, Longwood Drive (Local Park)
  • Brindabella Avenue Park, Brindabella Avenue (Local Park)

Division 9 Councillor Steve Robinson encouraged residents to review the options.

“It’s important the new play space meets as many of the community’s needs as possible,” Cr Robinson said.

“The proposed features vary widely so young people and their families should tell council what they think of the different areas and activities.”

Potential activities include:

  • multi-purpose courts
  • rebound wall
  • active play
  • integrated skate elements
  • climbing
  • hoop sports
  • exercise bars and parkour.

Council has also proposed seating and shade trees for each area.

The feedback provided during this consultation process will be used to help further assess the feasibility of each site and the community’s preferred location for these play activities.

Planning and design of the active play space will be progressed subject to community support and funding availability.

Peregian Springs residents will receive a newsletter with the options and details are also available on the project webpage. You can complete a short online survey or email ParksCapital Works@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au with your feedback.

The deadline for submissions is December 16, 2016.
