The playground at Ayr’s Anzac Park will be updated with new softfall, creating a softer and safer play space for park users.
Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said Council would carry out the works following the July school holidays for convenience of families.
“Anzac Park is a great community space that is very popular with families, attracting a high level of usage year-round,” Cr McLaughlin said.
“In addition to increasing the cushioning effect, the replacement of the softfall will rejuvenate and brighten up that whole area around the playground.
“I thank the Queensland Government for providing $60,000 in funding towards the works as part of the second round of the Works for Queensland program.
The playground at Arch Dunn Memorial Park in Home Hill is also currently receiving a major upgrade.
Council has closed the park for the duration of the works, which will see new playground equipment and a new picnic shelter and barbecue installed.
