Jubilee Pocket will be getting a brand new shaded playground and park facilities, including an off-leash dog enclosure, at the Wildlife Road Park.
The new park facilities will be installed under Works for Queensland funding, which aims to boost the local economy by providing local jobs.
The works will begin today and are expected to be completed by the end of October, weather permitting.
Whitsunday Regional Councillor for Division One, Jan Clifford, said the park’s upgrade would greatly benefit local residents.
“We will have a massive new playground, and shaded BBQs for families to enjoy spending time together,” she said.
“This area has been a really underutilised for a long time, and these works will help rejuvenate Jubilee Pocket for the local community.”
The new fenced off-leash dog enclosure will allow dogs to play off-lead in a safe environment for all park users.
The upgrade also includes a shade structure over the playground, to protect kids from the sun and the elements.
