UPDATE/OUTCOME: Council completed the bulk of the work, including the playground upgrade and drainage work, in February 2019. A new park shelter and BBQ facilities are due to be completed in the 2019/20 financial year.

This project is now closed for comment. Council wishes to thank all those who contributed their thoughts and ideas.

BACKGROUND

Noosa Council has sought community feedback on the upgrade and improvements of Pioneer Park, Cooran. This upgrade is designed to enhance the social hub of the Cooran community.

Draft Design

Council has prepared a final design ( see page two of Project News 2 in the Document Library to the right of this screen ) based on items identified by the community to be included in a new park design and consultation feedback. These items include:

  • a new 2m wide concrete pathway network within the park, linking with 4 new car parking bays off Prince Street;
  • a new park shelter & BBQ facilities;
  • drainage improvements;
  • new turf to improve the surface of the park grounds;
  • a power supply to cater for future markets;
  • actions to prevent vehicle access via private property;
  • improved road access to properties;
  • new park seating;
  • existing playground upgrade
  • improved amenity of the area
  • increased usable green space

An arborist's report has identified unhealthy trees for removal to improve the overall safety of the park.

Community Feedback

The community provided feedback by firstly viewing the project plan in the document library , then:

  • visiting our "Guestbook " online tool and commenting.
