THE popular Headland Park at Point Lookout will get an upgrade next year.
Construction on a new play space with a dual-slide climbing unit, nest swing, spring rocker and shell cubby will start in 2022.
It will be themed to reflect local cultural connections and North Stradbroke Island's marine environment.
Mayor Karen Williams said the upgrade would bring a new lease of life to the popular park.
"Next year will see some fabulous improvements in this wonderful park," she said.
The new space will also have picnic facilities including a shelter, table, seating and a barbecue, with connecting paths to ensure the park is accessible for everyone.
Ageing play equipment will be removed to make way for another shelter with a table and seating nearer the bus stop.
"Importantly, the 2022 upgrade will also include the sealing of the adjacent carpark to provide more formalised parking spaces and additional protection for environmental values," Cr Williams said.
Cr Peter Mitchell said the upgrade would provide a community space for everyone.
"Headland Park is central to many of the activities locals and visitors to Minjerribah enjoy.
"It provides access to the recently reopened Gorge Walk and pedestrian connectivity to two of the island's most popular beaches," he said.
Cr Mitchell said the large, grassy, space had long been a go-to spot for picnickers and people enjoying gelati or fish and chips from the nearby cafes.
