Play equipment at Brooksfield Drive Park
Area: Sarina
Published: August 9, 2019 - Consultation has concluded - Current Project


Brooksfield Drive Park is set to receive an upgrade.

Council is excited to announce that construction on Stage 1 of the Brooksfield Drive Park upgrade is set to begin in July!

In 2019, council partnered with the local Progress Association to progress residents’ long-standing request to have a half court installed in replacement of the aged play equipment. A concept for the park’s improvement was then released for public comment in June 2019.

Stage 1 of the park’s upgrade will include installation of a new half multi-sports court and contemporary fencing. Improvements will also be made to the existing picnic shelter.

The new court facilities will complement the children’s playground in Owen Jenkins Drive Park and will cater to the interests of older children and teenagers.

Construction will commence in July 2020 and will continue until late-August, weather permitting.

Brooksfield Drive Park will be closed to the public for the duration of the works. For an alternative playground whilst the Brooksfield Drive Park upgrade is under construction, please visit Owen Jenkins Drive Park.

    TWO parks in Sarina are set for a makeover over the next few months.

    Work will start on Brooksfield Drive Park at Sarina Beach in mid-July and Brownsey Court Park in Sarina in August.

    The work will include the installation of a multi-sports half court at Brooksfield Drive Park and a new, fully-fenced playground featuring a themed combo unit, seesaw and swings at Brownsey Court Park.

    Mayor Greg Williamson said council was committed to improving liveability across the whole region.

    TWO parks in Sarina are set for a makeover over the next few months.

    Mayor Greg Williamson said council was committed to improving liveability across the whole region.

    “These parks will provide Sarina residents with a place to gather and spend quality time with family and friends while providing facilities that encourage active lifestyles,” he said.

    “Construction at Brooksfield Drive Park will be completed in late August and work should wrap up at Brownsey Court Park in late-September, weather permitting.

    “Providing high quality infrastructure and facilities in our regional areas is a high priority for council.

    “Key projects that have been completed in Sarina in recent years including the Visitor Information Centre and Brewers Road shared pathway, and a town centre revitalisation project is on the cards.”

    The new half court facilities at Brooksfield Drive will complement the children’s playground at Owen Jenkins Drive Park and will cater to the interests of older children and teenagers.

    On the other hand, the playground facilities at Brownsey Court Park will appeal to a younger audience and will replace the aged playground equipment in the nearby Lando Avenue Park, which is being removed.

    Brownsey Court Park provides better access and visibility, which is why the play equipment, which includes a roofed shade structure and picnic setting, is being installed at this location.
