Fraser Coast Division 4 Councillor Daniel Sanderson said the playground in Queens Park would be closed for around three weeks, weather permitting, as the equipment is replaced.
“The park is very popular, especially among parents of younger children because the park is fenced. I believe the new equipment is eagerly anticipated, especially as parents had a hand in selecting the new playground through feedback via Council’s website and our Facebook page,” Cr Sanderson said.

Upgrades to the playground are to the tune of $85,000.

Meanwhile, the skate park at Anzac Park will be closed for two weeks from todays.
Repairs will be carried out to the park’s concrete surface.
Division 3 Councillor Paul Truscott said the surface is showing signs or wear.
“To ensure the safety of skaters and scooter riders, cracks and other breaks in the concrete skating surface will be filled. We anticipate that the $28,000 project will take two weeks to complete, weather permitting,” Cr Truscott said.
