A sculpture by local artists, a new picnic shelter and a much needed toilet block renovation – that’s just half of the latest makeover happening along the popular Maroochy River foreshore on Bradman Avenue.
Division 8 Councillor Jason OPray said Council started work on the fifth stage of foreshore upgrades late last month.
“We’re upgrading the revetment wall and the beach access ramp, and continuing the 3m wide smooth concrete pathways to improve access for pedestrian and cyclists,” Cr OPray said.
“There will also be plenty of space for people to picnic on the grass.
“We’re delivering the community’s vision for the area – it’s all part of the Maroochy River Foreshore Open Space Masterplan 2011, which involved extensive community consultation.
“Previous stages of the Maroochy River foreshore upgrade have been very well received by the community and I have no doubt these latest improvements will be too.
“So many people enjoy running, walking and cycling along the foreshore – it’s a perfect place to enjoy the relaxed outdoor lifestyle we all love.
“Upgrading our recreation areas encourages more people to enjoy the outdoors and brings people together, helping Council achieve its goal of a sustainable community.”
These upgrades are expected to be complete in early September, weather permitting.
