Paradise Point Broadwater Parklands Stages 1 & 2
Council invited residents to help identify priorities for the parkland area. Council's wanted to discuss how and when you use the park and what facilities and services you believe are required for the future. A major component of the improvement works will be the upgrade of the Broadwater.
Draft concepts provided a list of options for your consideration.
From this consultation, Council (and designated consultants) will prepare a draft Master Plan to address areas for improvement.
This parkland has been identified as a priority to benefit from improved equipment and aesthetic upgrade.
Consultation begun through meetings with the Paradise Point Progress Association.

Paradise Point Esplanade Park was originally considered a local park patronised mainly by nearby residents and locals. In more recent years its popularity has grown and visitation now originates from a far wider catchment.
Council has commissioned a consultant to carry out a Master Plan for the area. This design reflects the feedback received from the local community through questionnaire responses and public presentations. The Plan will be provided to Council later in the year for a final decision and if endorsed, it will be placed on public display as a completed Master Plan.
The park's more recent popularity has been due to embellishments (i.e. small stage, new toilets, improved event space, foreshore improvements including swimming enclosure, conducting of markets and more recently live stage entertainment.
This has further led to the site receiving Whole of City funding and its inclusion in Council's 10 year plan. Developer contributions and proposed Divisional Allocations are also set aside for the area.
The Master Plan has identified existing pathway and park facilities for upgrade or improvement. Considerations have included:
- picnic facilities
- shade structures
- toilet facilities
- pedestrian and bike links
- catering to the needs of community groups
- extent of boardwalks
- event needs
- swimming facilities
The draft Master Plan proposals will now be forwarded to Council for a decision later in the year.
