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.
The open grassed area with large established trees in Buderim Pines West Park makes for an ideal location for a new play space as it allows for opportunities for both formal and informal play.
Where to from here
The findings from the survey will be analysed and summary of the survey results will be shared at the conclusion of the survey period.
Council is committed to providing high quality open space that supports active and healthy communities, and we look forward to working together to get the best outcome for Buderim.
