With an easing of the covid pandemic and vaccines on the way we are pleased to announce the opening
of the new adventure playground. In the short period of time since opening it has already proved very
popular with the younger members of the community. Additionally a recent downpour with associated
increased water volume through portions of the park has not seen any material damage to the precinct.

As of the last general meeting the Committee advise that the re-erection of the Rotunda is on the
current Park improvement agenda with a commencement expected in the near future.
There remains some debate ongoing as to the final erection location.

Park venue bookings are steadily on the rise which augers well for a successful 2021.
More general Park events/functions for the Community at large are in the planning phase.

Playground maintenance update from Secretary Cheryl:

Notification received from the City of Gold Coast 4th of August 2021:
Please find an update below on the playground flood repairs and softfall upgrade works,
which will commence on site next Monday 9th of August at 7am. The existing Contractor
will undertake the works in two stages.

Stage 1 Works – anticipated timeframe 09/08/2021 – 20/08/2021

  • Works will be undertaken in the eastern section of the playground that is currently closed
    and also require closure of the windmill tower and clatter bridge whilst the
    softfall is repaired. The remaining western section of the playground
    and bbq area will remain open during Stage 1 works.
  • Signage will be installed with the CoGC Customer Contact Centre number (1300 GOLD COAST)

Stage 2 Works - anticipated timeframe 20/08/2021 –  24/09/2021

 Works will be undertaken on the water play elements and throughout the junior play
zone including around the water tank tower
The intent is to open the eastern
playground section (windmill tower and log play area) to the public whilst stage
2 works are underway, however this will be subject to establishing a safe division
between play and construction that will need to be continually assessed on site.
There will likely be a period when the whole playground will require closure
for the safety of the Contractor and public

  • Prior to full playground closure a week’s notice will be provided to NCPA who can hopefully
    provide an update on their web page. The City will also provide an update on our Park
    finder page and arrange notification via social media
  • Signage will be installed with the CoGC Customer Contact Centre number (1300 GOLD COAST)
