Project information

Sunshine Coast Council invited community feedback on a new play space in Buderim Pines West Park, Buderim.

Why a new play space?

The recently endorsed Sunshine Coast Recreation Parks Plan 2021 has identified a shortfall in playground facilities in the Buderim area.

Play is an important aspect of a child's development and helps children to acquire important behavioural skills, cultivate their personal identity, and develop self-respect, confidence, and self-worth skills that are needed in social contexts later in life.

Buderim Pines West Park

Council has identified Buderim Pines West Park as the proposed location for the new play space. The proposed location will service a catchment of Buderim that does not currently have a local play space within 500 metres.

Buderim Pines West Park is designated as a local recreation park, which are small parks that cater for frequent visits and are located a short walk from home for people in the surrounding local community.

Community Engagement

In May 2022, the community was invited to share their thoughts and vision for Buderim Pines West Park.

The results are as follows:

The ideas and feedback received during the engagement have been used to develop the park landscape concept plan. The concept design will assist with seeking funding to develop the playground.
