Bowen Park and Footpath Upgrades

Whitsunday Regional Council has approved funding for further upgrades in Bowen, including a new shared path along Hay Street and exciting park upgrades at Gideon Pott Park and Rose Bay.

Work is expected to commence later this year with Bowen receiving a new 2.5m-wide shared path on Hay Street, between Santa Barbara Parade and Powell Road.

Gideon Pott Park in Queens Beach will receive new shelters and BBQs, a rope climbing playground, and new fencing around existing playground equipment.
Rose Bay Park will be receiving a new shelter, BBQ and seating to provide more shade for residents and visitors.

Division 5 Councillor Dave Clark says the works would greatly benefit the residents of Bowen, creating even more opportunities for enjoying the outdoors.

“This extra funding allows us to really improve our park equipment and recreational infrastructure.”

Division 6 Councillor Mike Brunker says the upgrades would provide better community facilities for Bowen residents and visitors.

“Not only will these works deliver a higher quality experience but also stimulates the local economy by providing jobs to local businesses.”
