In 2010, council purchased a 3.4 hectare piece of land on the corner of Church and King Streets, Buderim, to develop into a park.

Project scope

The vision for the new park is for it to be a place of nature, recreation and to be enjoyed by everyone.

Project update

Construction of stage six is now underway.

Stage six comprises:

  • a multi-purpose building which includes public amenities and performance stage
  • a village square
  • a bbq and picnic shelter
  • pathways
  • planting

The staged implementation of the park is based on the Endorsed Landscape Plan[1183KB]

Where to from here

The construction of stage six is scheduled to be completed prior to Christmas 2017.

The development of the park will occur in a number of stages over several years. The rate and extent each year will be subject to securing funding for future stages.

Council will use the landscape concept plan to apply for additional funding from various sources and agencies.

Updates on the implementation of the landscape concept plan will be available on this website.

Overview

Council developed a landscape concept plan[4938KB] in 2011. This open space is suitable for families, friends and individuals to enjoy the outdoors.

Some of the key components of the landscape plan include:

  • a village green
  • a large kick-about area
  • internal paths
  • various plantings
  • viewing terraces
  • children's play area
  • BBQ areas
  • multi-functional community events space
  • village square
  • parking for park users.

Background

In early 2010, council purchased the parcel of land to develop the land into a district-level recreation park.

A district-level park provides a greater range of spaces than can normally be put in local parks, including:

  • more diverse play spaces
  • picnic and social spaces
  • kick-about areas
  • community gatherings / events
  • opportunities for art and artistic expression
  • access to natural bushland areas or link to a recreation trail or pathway networks.

Council selected the site as it met the standard requirement of a district recreation park.

Characteristics of the site include:

  • central location in Buderim
  • large, flat, open space - this is currently not provided on Buderim Mountain
  • close proximity to:
    • art and craft centre
    • Buderim War Memorial Hall
    • Buderim Performing Arts
    • Buderim Mountain Primary School
  • the ability to provide the community with a valuable piece of open space.

In 2010, council invited the community to share ideas and help shape the vision for Buderim Village Park. A combination of community engagement activities were undertaken including a questionnaire, Meet us on the Street and stakeholder interviews.

A draft landscape concept was developed based on the community's vision for the park. The draft landscape concept plan was then reviewed by the community.
