Council is proposing to upgrade Brennan Park, Bongaree on Bribie Island. Parks and open space play a critical role in providing recreation facilities that promote health and wellbeing for the community.
Brennan Park is a popular park for locals and tourists and the new facilities are intended to provide additional amenity for users. Some infrastructure in the park has reached the end of it’s service life so Council needs to give the park a facelift to make sure it continues to meet contemporary community expectations for a park of this type.
The project will also improve accessibility with enhanced paths and will improve planting areas to allow for root zones of the numerous mature trees that provide important shade and contribute to the parks character.
The park upgrade will include:
- Replacement of the existing flying fox track ride with a new senior play element, other play units will all be retained;
- Installation of new seating and playground walls;
- Replacement of the old playground soft fall;
- New picnic facilities;
- Pathway upgrades for improved convenience and disability access compliance;
- New planting and wider garden beds to allow for root zones of mature trees;
Council is aware that the ageing flying fox track ride is popular with children however, it has reached the end of its service life. This play element is intended to be replaced by an exciting new unit, suited to young teens. Council is considering the following replacement options for the flying fox track ride:
Option 1: Mobilus
The Mobilus is a seesaw swing that can move in multiple directions.
Option 2: Track Ride Tower
The Track Ride Tower consists of a track ride, climb net, platform and a pipe ladder.
Option 3: Giant swing with nest
The Giant Swing consists of a spacious swing basket that can move in multiple directions.
