Council Unveils $35.5m Park Plan -

The draft suggests the completed project could cost up to $35.5 million – $27.3m for the aquatic centre and $8.2m for the remainder of the park – however it could be developed in stages over a number of years as funding became available.

Council will be seeking feedback (see below) from residents about the draft plan before a final version is prepared.

The draft has been produced by the Otium Planning Group, a company that specialises in planning sport, leisure and community projects.

Otium began working on the report earlier this year by holding a number of consultations with community organisations that use the park or pool.

The company also assessed 671 community survey responses the Council received about the project, and drew on the South Burnett’s current demographic data and forecast future changes in population size and age to ensure any redesign would meet community needs.

The draft  proposes retaining a number of Memorial Park’s existing features including the War Memorial and rotunda, existing pathways and children’s play area.

Council will be opening the office next to the Kingaroy Library in Glendon Street for residents to see what the draft looks like and discuss their reaction to it with Council staff and Otium Planning Group personnel.

Consultation sessions will be held on:

A final consultation session will be held at the WJ Lang Memorial Pool in Alford Street on Tuesday, December 13, between 1:00pm and 3:00pm.
