Albany Lakes Park


Sippy Downs park adds to council’s open space

Albany Lakes Park provides new facility for community.

Council’s Environment and Liveability Strategy sets the strategic direction to guide the actions of council and its partners to ensure a healthy environment and liveable Sunshine Coast to 2041.

This vision of liveability includes putting in place plans and strategies to create liveable spaces and places to live, work and play, and opportunities to connect with nature.

Recreation parks are an integral part of this. They connect us to nature and provide opportunities to connect our communities with the outdoors and to enjoy spaces that encourage a more active, healthy lifestyle. In support of this, council has recently delivered Stage Two of the Albany Lakes Park Landscape Concept Plan, in partnership with the Queensland Government. This included the construction of large shade sails, fencing, additional picnic settings, barbecue, shade trees and drinking fountain. The shade sails have been designed to complement future stages of park improvements.

Stage One was completed in July 2021. The completed and planned future improvements to this park, which includes active spaces, opportunities for nature-based play and quiet green nooks, adds to our green spaces across the region and continues to advance the desired outcomes of the Environment and Liveability Strategy.

The ongoing design and construction of the Albany Lakes Park is just another way in which council is working to achieve our vision for the Sunshine Coast to be Australia’s most sustainable region: Healthy. Smart. Creative.
