Adding highway appeal to Mackay park
With Fairmeadow Drive Park bordering the Bruce Highway, the main goal of the Park’s recent upgrade was focussed on improving the aesthetic value of the area.
To this end, Landmark Products supplied and installed a five metre square K303 Peninsula shelter, and an Althorpe picnic setting, with bolt down legs.
As an eye-catching addition, Landmark also designed and supplied a 17-post hot-dipped galvanised steel structure and the landscaping services.
The project, which also included work on another community park, followed public consultation by the Development Services Department of the Mackay Regional Council.
Development Services Director Gerard Carlyon said the community had provided some excellent feedback.
“We spoke with a number of people who live in close proximity to the parks as well as frequent users of the area and the wider community,” he said.
“The designs we have put together are based on their suggestions.
“Of course, budget constraints mean not every idea put forward was feasible, but we have done our best to achieve the most beneficial outcome for the community based on what the public said they would like included.”
The Peninsula shelter supplied by Landmark Products featured an LOSP treated, factory stained pine timber roof (designed to C2 W50 wind code) and front screen panel frame, and hot dipped, galvanised and powder coated steel posts in Black Satin.
