Progress will continue after new year on the skate park upgrade in Cooloola Cove to include a multi-use basketball half court, shade shelter, low wall seating and open skate bowl
It’s all coming together nicely at the Billabong Park skate facility at Cooloola Cove.
A multi-use basketball half court, shade shelter, low wall seating and open skate bowl make up the new fun zone at Cooloola Cove. Unfortunately the start of the works was significantly delayed due to Covid restrictions and the NSW lockdown, otherwise it was planned to be completed for Christmas.
While the contractors are on break for the holiday period the area will be under surveillance. Work will recommence in the new year and proposed to be finished early February, weather pending.
The project is a joint initiative of Gympie Regional Council and the Queensland Government’s $600 million Works 4 Qld program.
Cr Jess Milne said, “Cooloola Cove is a family community. This facility will be a real asset to residents as it will fill the activities gap that currently exists in the eight-to-teen age bracket.
“The combination of the skate bowl and basketball half court will provide a space that will enable numerous activities to be conducted in.”
