New ablution facilities, pathway upgrades, upgraded gardens and shade are just some of the many new features that Tom Jeffery Park will boast.
Work commenced in July and will finish in mid-October 2017, weather permitting.
The project includes new ablution facilities, greatly enhancing the shower and toilet amenities. It also features the construction of a significant storage facility and combined office/first aid room for Surf Life Saving Queensland.
Other project elements include upgraded pathways and garden beds throughout the parklands, with irrigation infrastructure to be installed in order to maintain the turf and gardens and the new paths to provide a more prominent thoroughfare to the adjacent beach.
Residents will experience limited impacts during the project's duration, with Council ensuring uninterrupted beach access.
Temporary ablution facilities are available and the outside shower continues to operate throughout.
Council has ensured construction work is not conducted during the June-July school holidays. However, there will be an impact on park patrons during the September school holidays as project funding arrangements stipulate that it must be completed by November.
