MAYOR Gail Sellers is excited about the projects planned for early 2015.
Skateboarders, BMX riders and children on scooters will have a reprieve from the heat with the shading planned for early in the year.
Mayor sellers said the $150,000 project would be worth it.
"It had concerned me since the last shading came down due to the structure failing," she said.
"It's important the children aren't directly in the sun when they are out there playing."
She was also excited for the meeting place and community hub in Calliope.
"The completion of Bunting Park will be a huge asset for the people of Calliope," she said.
"Any place were the community can get together and interact is a positive thing for our region."
The design of the second Boyne River crossing will cost $3.5 million.
Cr Sellers said the design was integral in acquiring funds for the development.
"Once we have the design we can actively source the necessary funding for the bridge to Tannum Sands," she said.
"The bridge will be big boost for the people of
Tannum Sands and Boyne Island because too many people have to use Centenary Drive." She said the development of Lions Park at Miriam Vale would begin after Anzac Day.
"It will be good to get that happening for the people of Miriam Vale," Cr Sellers said. "It's right in the main street and has been in the planning stage for a long time."
