Viv Mason Park to receive new shelters


Viv Mason Park at Tin Can Bay is a fantastic spot for families, dog walkers and wildlife enthusiasts. It’s also a great spot to pull up at one of the shelters and take in the natural scenery. Recently residents and visitors may have noticed the poor condition of the Viv Mason Park shelters, two of which have been barricaded off to the public in recent months.

Starting in the first week of November, Gympie Regional Council will commence its Viv Mason Park Shelter Replacement Project. This project will see the removal of the five timber shelters with the replacement of four aluminium shelters.

The new aluminium shelters will be better suited to their life next to the ocean, have a longer life and require significantly less maintenance. The new design will also provide improved experiences for users and better access for disabled or elderly persons.

The first two shelter sheds are scheduled for removal on Wednesday, 3 November with the remaining shelters removed on a staggered timeline to reduce disturbance to park users.

Council is hoping to have the replacement works completed in time for Christmas, weather and construction conditions permitting.

This project is expected to cost $120,000 and is funded by Gympie Regional Council’s Capital Works Program.

Council would like to thank the public in advance for their patience. If you have any queries, or want to know more on this project, please call council on 1300 307 800.
