A unique and eye-catching landmark will play host to the Buderim Christmas Carols on December 10, with a new village square and multi-functional performance area among the newest additions at the 3.4 hectare Buderim Village Park.

Mayor Mark Jamieson and Division 7 Councillor Ted Hungerford joined organisers of the carols event at the park today as they inspected the site and put the new stage area to the test with a preview performance.

Other new features include an amenities building, extra barbecue and picnic facilities, pathways and landscaping.

Mayor Jamieson said council had transformed Buderim Village Park over the past five years.

“Council’s vision for this park has seen it grow from a vacant block of land to one of our region’s best district-level parks over the past five years,” Mayor Jamieson said.

“With one of the best views on the Coast and high quality recreational facilities, it’s easy to see why this park is so well loved by our community.”

Division 7 Councillor Ted Hungerford said he was excited that the park would be able to host major community and school events in addition to family picnics and birthday parties.

“I’m proud to see this latest stage of work will be ready for our community to enjoy over summer – these new facilities are possibly the most eagerly anticipated additions to the park,” Cr Hungerford.

“The multi-functional building, with its raised covered performance area and nearby amenities building, make this an ideal destination for events of all kinds throughout the year.

“This building includes a kitchenette and storage room with fold-out furniture that can be used by organisations to host community meetings, workshops, wedding receptions and other events.

“The new upper promenade path and village square, with its shaded seating areas, bike racks and drinking fountains, cement the park as a wonderful gathering space.

“There are a series of impressive artwork panels incorporated into the design too, which add to the building’s character.

“These panels were designed by local artist Steven Bordonaro who took cues from the park, Buderim and the wider Sunshine Coast and presented them in a whimsical and fun way.”

These latest additions are the sixth stage of construction for Buderim Village Park.

The final two stages, which include a car park upgrade, children’s playground, viewing deck and additional picnic shelter are subject to council’s future budget considerations.

This project has been delivered in the year of the 50th Anniversary of the Naming of Sunshine Coast.
