Are you ready to play, kids?

NORTH Burnett Regional Council has completed work on new play equipment in Half Penny Park, Mundubbera.

A new playground has also been installed at Mingo Crossing Caravan and Recreation Park.

Council has also revealed that Monto's Memorial Park will be upgraded to an all-abilities playground.

A council spokeswoman said the all-abilities upgrade had been designed, but they were waiting on advice about funding, which should come by mid-September.

However, work will start shortly on the installation of shade covers at Memorial Park and Biggenden Lion's Park, under the State Government's Works for Queensland program.

The Memorial Park play set remains fenced off.

Unsafe play sets, revealed by a council audit in early 2018, have been removed at Gayndah's Dowsett Park (the swing set still remains) and at Paradise Dam Caravan Park and Campground.

The audit revealed that 16 North Burnett parks required attention.

Work at more popular parks was done immediately, while the rest of the work has been triaged until funding becomes available.
