Church Park in Park Avenue now features a new $85,000 shade shelter, thanks to Rockhampton Regional Council.
Parks, Sport and Public Spaces Councillor Cherie Rutherford said the structure enhances and compliments the natural shade in the park.
“The trees already provide some lovely shade at Church Park, but we wanted to fill a few gaps over the play area, and the 24m by 7m structure does this nicely,” Cr Rutherford said.
Divisional Councillor Donna Kirkland said the shelter is sure to be a hit with families who can now enjoy the undercover play area.
“We have some wonderful parks in our area but this structure makes Church Park even better, with children able to stay sun safe while playing, exploring, and imagining their way around the equipment.
“The park has been closed for the past couple of weeks during the installation, so we would like to thank the community for their patience while this work was carried out.”
