Blueprint for next stages of Cannonvale Lakes unveiled

New footbridges, solar lighting and shelters have all been pencilled into the plan for upcoming work at Cannonvale Lakes park.

But the Whitsunday Regional Council is calling for feedback from residents on the plan.

The blueprint for stages three to five at Cannonvale Lakes has been released and gives an insight into what the area could be transformed into.

The plan details concrete footpaths, a deco footpath, seating, 4m x 4m shelter, solar bollards and a drinking bubbler are proposed to be installed in stage 3.

Come stage 4, a larger proposed shelter has been included in the plan as well as two new footbridges.

Rounding out the project in stage 5, there's proposed revegetation and more seating.

The council is calling for community input on the proposed upgrades at the park, on Parker Rd, as the work will be considered for future Works for Queensland funding through the State Government.

Whitsunday Regional Council took over the parkland in the 2016-17 financial year and has been in development and planning stages since.

Previous work has included installing a toilet block, walking paths, half basketball court and shade sails.

Consultation on the latest round of plans is open now and will be available until Monday, February 15.

A public display and barbecue will also be held at Cannonvale Lakes park near the barbecue tables from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, February 6.
