Tender awarded for Memorial Park work

GLADSTONE Regional Council yesterday endorsed Boyd's Bay Landscape and Environment's tender to complete the landscape works for Stage One of the Memorial Park redevelopment.

The redevelopment is to be completed using a $434,000 Federal Government Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program (RLCIP) grant with Council contributing the balance of project funds of $424,660.

Council's Sports and Recreation portfolio spokesperson Councillor Graham McDonald said three tenders were received for the project, with each being considered under a comprehensive tender assessment process.

He said Boyd's Bay Landscape and Environment's tender had been the most impressive based on its past performance.

"The landscaping works are anticipated to be completed within six weeks from onsite commencement," Cr McDonald said.

"The project will involve plantings to minimise erosion and sediment loss with shade trees to enhance and beautify the Memorial Park surroundings.

"The completion of the first stage of the Memorial Park redevelopment will create a family friendly area to enjoy a variety of recreational activities."

Provisions of seats to the newly installed platforms along the pathway will be carried out by Council once the softscaping work has been completed.
