Sunshine Coast Council – Media release
Sippy Downs Albany Lakes District Park
The Sippy Downs community is invited to comment on the Draft Sippy Downs Parks Master Plan, which outlines plans for a new major, district level playing space along with improvements to existing parks and the addition of sports facilities such as basketball courts.
Division 6 Councillor Christian Dickson said the Sunshine Coast Council plan identified opportunities and priorities for future upgrades.
“This draft plan has been developed following previous consultation with our community,” Cr Dickson said.
“Our residents helped us understand park use, key issues and demand for park activities so I’m excited to be presenting a plan that incorporates their ideas and priorities.
“The main feedback from residents was that they wanted to see newer and more user-friendly parks in the Sippy Downs area and they often travel to other communities to use play spaces.
“Over the years we have completed smaller upgrades in the existing local parks by adding shade sails and new play equipment.
“The Sippy Downs Parks Master Plan now focuses on the need to construct new district-level park facilities and larger play spaces.
“This is a long-term plan with easy short-term outcomes that will really make a difference for our community, particularly in terms of safety and easy access.”

Residents are invited to review the draft master plan and provide feedback by completing the online survey on council’s website before 5pm on March 26, 2018.
You can also email feedback to ParksBusinessTechnical@sunshinecoast.qld.gov.au
Once feedback on the draft master plan has been received, council will develop a final master plan.
The final plan will provide the basis to seek funding for development and renewal of park infrastructure at Sippy Downs.
It will be delivered in stages and implementation will be dependent on future funding.
Top priorities for Sippy Downs parks
- Deliver a major district level play space with shelters, picnic and barbecue facilities for group gatherings similar to the Buderim Village Park.
- New park recreation facilities such as basketball courts, and combination soccer and rugby posts.
- Additions to existing parks including trees and shaded spaces for children to play, pathways, lighting, parking, drink fountains and toilets.
In November 2016, the Sippy Downs community was invited to undertake a park user survey and provide feedback to help shape the future of the park network.
Feedback from the park user survey has been used to guide the development of the draft Sippy Downs Parks Master Plan.
The plan has been prepared to address the lack of parks infrastructure and to guide the management and renewal of parks and open space at Sippy Downs.
Sippy Downs is a master planned community that has grown rapidly over two decades following on from delivery of the court-ordered (i.e. not approved by council) Chancellor Park development. The now heavily populated area is deficient in park infrastructure and community facilities.
This morning the Avid Property Group officially opened Peter Crosby way which is the brand new connection road into Harmony at Palmview.
It has been some 15 years since Palmview was originally envisaged and today marks one step closer to delivery of this brand new master planned community at the very Heart of the Sunshine Coast.
The Sippy Downs and district community association and the volunteers that have driven it along for the past 13 years played an integral part in ensuring that this development had the best possible balance with the least possible negative impact upon the Sippy Downs community.
Councillor Christian Dickson from Division 6, Sunshine Coast Council said of this brand new opening ” This is a fantastic new residential community right in the heart of the Sunshine Coast providing over 20 hectares open space for recreational purposes forming part of the total 100 hectares of open space for the community. This will serve as further community access areas for the existing Sippy Downs community and will provide many new road access points both North to the Sunshine Motorway and South to the Caloundra interchange at Caloundra Road and direct access to the Bruce Highway so in terms of Road access this is good for the community.”
The community association would like to thank have a property group for inviting us to attend and we look forward to forging strong relationships between the entire Palmview community and the Sippy Downs community as a whole.

Sippy Downs residents here is you chance to truly have your say about future parks upgrades for the entire area.
This is an absolutely fantastic opportunity for local residents to actively take part in providing Sunshine Coast Council and in turn Cr Christian Dickson – Division 6 the information they need to deliver future improvements to parks in Sippy Downs, Queensland that are truly needed and wanted.
It is essential that as local residents we all take part in this survey to ensure that the upgrades to be included in this Master Plan are truly representative of community needs and wants.
We are very excited to not only see these upgrades on their way but thrilled to see the consultation for this master plan being delivered in a way that is truly collaborative, inclusive and available to each and every local resident including mail outs to residents letterboxes for those who do not use social media or local news and information websites.
Been wanting an upgrade to your local park? The more responses you harvest for your local park the greater the likely hood of it’s inclusion in the final plans so share this post as widely as possible.
