Project Overview

Project Overview

Council has identified Khancoban Drive Park for an upgrade from a local level park to a district level park. For more information on the Sunshine Coast's open space areas, park types and hierarchy please visit Council’s website.

Council is seeking your input to understand:

  • When and how you currently use Khancoban Drive Park
  • What you love about the park
  • What you would like to see included in the upgraded park; and
  • Where within the park you would like to see the improvements included.

Community Engagement

Council invites you to have your say by completing the short online survey between Tuesday, 7 May and Tuesday, 4 June 2024 at 5pm.

Your input will guide the design and priorities for improvement at Khancoban Drive Park and assist Council to develop a concept landscape plan that meets the needs of the local community.

Background

Khancoban Drive Park is a beautiful park located north of Karawatha Drive, between Khancoban Drive and Jingellic Drive. It offers expansive green spaces and abundant potential. Previously, the community was consulted regarding the preferred location for a dog off-leash area, and the area identified in the plan was the preferred choice by the community. This designated area will expand the functionality of Khancoban Park and will enable the community to exercise their dogs in a green park setting.


As a district-level park, Khancoban will play a pivotal role in the Buderim and Mountain Creek area, providing space for our community to socialise and enjoy outdoor activities together. Parks like this can also have economic benefits for the town, providing space for activities such as markets and offering a place for travellers to rest and relax outdoors.

Next Steps
