Updated Trail Counts and Grants Update

Updated Trail Counts and Grants Update

Hi Folks,

I’ve just checked the counters after a couple of months. The new trails at Parklands are attracting a sustained thousand rides a month and they seem to be holding up okay. You can view the stats on our Trail Care page. If you do notice issues with any trails within Parklands please be sure to send an email to [email protected] and we’ll discuss it with QPWS.

A worn timber bridge that was made worse by Cyclone Debbie’s down pour.

Also, we’ve submitted an application for round 7 of the Queensland Government’s Get Playing – Places and Spaces grant, the Sunshine Coast Council have already approved us for a major community grant that will be the co-contribution for this grant.

Working with QPWS we’re seeking to fix up all the creek crossings throughout the Parklands Conversation park. Rock armouring will be the preferred method however bridges will be installed/upgraded where needed. Additionally many ‘fall line’ trails will be reworked and drainage issues remedied.

We hope that this body of work will bring the trail network up to scratch. This will free everyone up to start focusing on future developments for Parklands and further afield. If we’re successful I anticipate the work to begin Q2 2019 and be completed around mid-2020.

In the interim, we have a Community Benefit Fund grant to spend on trail care so keep an eye out for upcoming trail care days.

Stay safe, keep riding!
