The family fun day that was planned for the new Mooloolaba foreshore’s opening may have been postponed but it will not be forgotten – save the date for November 5.
Division 4 Councillor Joe Natoli joined Mornings with Fee to chat about the world-class beachfront parkland that covers one hectare of multi-level parklands.
It opened on June 28 and welcomes locals and visitors to enjoy hours of healthy and active beachfront fun on one of the region’s most beloved coastlines.
The breathtaking spot, nestled between the Alexandra Headland and Mooloolaba Esplanade, extends 350 metres along the beachfront.
The Mooloolaba Northern Parkland is the first stage of the Mooloolaba Foreshore Revitalisation Project, which, over the coming years, will increase beachfront parkland in Mooloolaba by 40 per cent.
It will also prepare the Sunshine Coast for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympics world stage.
