Residents from Bilambil Heights have the chance to help design the Coral Street Park upgrade, including a brand new playspace.

Earlier this year, more than 100 residents completed a community survey to share their ideas which were used to develop the draft plan.

Council now wants to hear from the community again and is encouraging locals to have their say on the draft concept plan, which includes:

  • new play equipment including monkey bars, swings, slides and nature play
  • accessible picnic table, seating and drinking fountain
  • new pathway and scooter track
  • community garden planters and landscaping

Residents can visit www.yoursaytweed.com.au/coral-street-park to give their feedback by Sunday 15 August 2021.

Manager Parks and Active Communities Stewart Brawley said the park upgrade is part of an initiative to improve the quality of parks and open spaces across the Tweed.

“Thank you to the residents who completed the community survey earlier this year – it played a vital role in developing the draft concept plan, including the range of play equipment being proposed,” he said.

“We now want to hear from you again to ensure the upgrade plan meets the needs of residents and creates opportunities for the community to be healthier, safer and more inclusive.”

Council is funding the works which are expected to be completed by March 2022.

As part of a wider program to provide high quality parks and open spaces across the Tweed, this latest upgrade means 15 parks will have received significant improvements over the past 3 years.

Residents can also view the final concept plans for the upgrades to Clarrie Englert Park on Gollan Drive, Tweed Heads West and Banora Point Community Centre Park on Leisure Drive by visiting www.yoursaytweed.com.au/parks. Both upgrades are set to be completed by the end of the year.

Council has received additional contributions from the NSW Government’s Everyone Can Play grant program for the upgrades to Clarrie Englert Park and Banora Point Community Centre Park.
