Peregian and Mudjimba outdoor spaces set to be improved

TWO LOCAL parks in the region will be getting a makeover of sorts with capital works set to be pumped into Power Memorial Park in Mudjimba and the Peregian Skate Park at Peregian Beach thanks to infrastructure funding from both Sunshine Coast and Noosa Councils respectively.  

Works are underway at Power Memorial Park with Sunshine Coast Council starting stage one of landscaping works which will include artworks and upgraded facilities.  

The park is incredibly popular and has loads of facilities including BBQs, shelters, picnic tables and a shaded playground which is all located across the street from the shops and adjacent to the beach.  

Sunshine Coast Council Division 8 Councillor Taylor Bunnag said the upgrade would make a great park even greater. 

“I regularly visit Power Memorial Park with my young family, and I’m pleased we’ve started the staged works to improve this much-used space,” Cr Bunnag said.  

The first stage will see $330,000 spent on renewing the five shelters adjacent to the playground, with new roofing, barbecues and seating.  

“I’m looking forward to seeing the artwork in the park – we’re painting the table tennis tables as well as the electrical switchboard cupboard.

“We are also widening the pathways and planting new shade trees to accompany landscaping works. 

“I’m really pleased to see Council also enhancing the lighting and accessibility to the park which is a necessary improvement to ensure all members of our community can access and enjoy the park.”   

Stage one works are expected to be completed by the end of July 2024, weather permitting. 

Council will start stage two of the park improvements, which will include upgrading the playground, after the September school holidays later this year. 

Peregian Skate Park Upgrade  

A litter further north the immensely popular Peregian Beach Skate Park works will be starting this month and will see the park upgraded to suit the needs of all skateboard and scooter riders.  

Noosa Mayor Frank Wilkie said the design has been sourced directly from local skaters in an effort to ensure the new park builds on what they like about the existing facility while improving safety.  

“The upgraded park will feature three zones designed for beginners and advanced users alike, ensuring a space everyone can enjoy.” 

Key considerations in the design include using the existing footprint, retaining the current shade sail, minimising the impact on the Norfolk Island Pines and coastal vegetation, mitigating coastal zone impacts, and enhancing drainage for the skate bowl.

Completion is anticipated by August 2024. During this period, the skate park will be closed, and safety barriers will be installed to restrict access. However, access to the beach, playground, amenities, and markets will remain open as usual. 

“We appreciate the community’s patience during the construction phase,” Cr Wilkie said. 

“We are confident that the upgraded skate park will be a fantastic addition to Peregian Beach, providing a safer and more enjoyable environment for all users.”
