When it comes to parks, families in the Bundaberg Region are truly spoilt for choice. While Lake Ellen and Alexandra Park would be considered jewels in the crown of family recreational areas, followed closely by our coastal playgrounds, a hidden gem is nestled away in suburban Bundaberg – Boreham Park.
Located on Avenell Street in Avenell Heights, Boreham Park already features three playground areas, shaded tables, picnic facilities and barbecues. Flying fox, climbing equipment, basketball hoops, fitness equipment, bike circuit and dirt BMX track will keep children of all ages entertained for hours.
These features are set to be enhanced with $1 million from the Queensland Government’s Works For Queensland program that will add new play equipment and a water play area.
The zero-depth water play area will simulate a natural creek to provide fun for all ages with misting poles, water gates and a rock-themed water play area for exploration. An Archimedes screw will allow children to move water from a low point to a high point and drain away back down to the creek.
In-ground trampolines, a pedal loop path and a stepping-stone path will be added, as well as an adventure tower with a rope bridge, climbing elements and a large slide designed for older children.
Work is expected to start in early 2021 and finish in June 2021 for the mid-year school holidays. While large sections will be closed during the works, part of the park (including some barbecue areas and the flying fox) will remain open.
The park’s features will be unique to the Bundaberg Region – celebrating our love of the great outdoors.
