Have a hand in designing one of the Coast's newest parks

WANT to design a park?  Well here is your chance.

The Sunshine Coast Council is  inviting community comment on a draft landscape concept plan that will help guide future development of the newly acquired Glass House District Park.

Division 1 Councillor Rick Baberowski said this is a rare opportunity to help design a new park.

"Acquired only recently, this parkland has exceptional views, natural areas and great open space," Cr Baberowski said.

"The Glass House District Park has tremendous potential to be a great place for families, events and activities.

"We are seeking input from the community to help ensure this becomes a much used and much loved recreational area. 

"Council wants to hear where our community thinks the pathways and playgrounds should be and whether it should have a dog park or a community garden.

"I look forward to discussing the possibilities at a community consultation event on Saturday, June 6 where council's landscape designers will be available to demonstrate and explain the draft design concepts and answer any questions".

The 38 hectare Glass House District Park combines Glass House Mountains Environmental Reserve, Page Park, Dana Close Reserve, Smerdon Way Park and Banksia Park.

Community members can get involved in the planning of the parklands by attending an upcoming event at Dana Close Reserve at 2pm on June 6.
