Acting Mayor DonnOne of the Gold Coast’s most popular foreshore parks is set for a makeover with three related projects worth an estimated $9 million. Work starts early-October.
The family-favourite Tallebudgera Creek Park is getting an upgrade, with new and more accessible facilities. The nearby boardwalk will also receive an extension and a viewing platform.
The final ‘piece in the jigsaw’ is the seawall on the northern end of Palm Beach. This will be renewed to maintain the entrance to the creek and prevent beach erosion.
Acting Mayor Donna Gates says the development will improve and maintain Gold Coast’s parks and recreational facilities.
“It will enhance the fantastic outdoor lifestyle our city is known for,” Acting Mayor Donna Gates says. “These upgrades will transform the Tallebudgera parklands into a destination foreshore park for everyone to enjoy with increased levels of accessibility for those with reduced mobility.”
Assistant Minister for Local Government Nikki Boyd says the State Government is enhancing the Gold Coast’s already great lifestyle.
“Gold Coasters are rightly proud of their world class lifestyle, with the beaches and parks world famous and shorthand for Queensland,” Assistant Minister Boyd says.
“The State Government is investing in the Gold Coast with $800,000 for the Tallebudgera Creek Park upgrade. The upgrades will deliver better access to the famous beach and public amenities like barbecue areas and playgrounds.
The Tallebudgera Creek Park improvements include
- New pathways and improved beach access
- New public amenities
- A ‘Changing Places’ facility for persons with reduced mobility access
- New high quality all-inclusive playground
- Upgraded barbecue and picnic areas
- A wider boardwalk with viewing platform
- New tree planting
Works will continue until mid-2023.
