DRAFT plans to rejuvenate two parks in Kingscliff have gone on exhibition for public comment.

Designs to upgrade Faulks Park and Ed Parker Rotary Park can be viewed from February 25 to March 22 in the council's latest stage of open space upgrades along the Tweed Shire coastline.

Council is liaising with community groups to develop draft landscape concept plans for the revamps and the Kingscliff Ratepayers and Progress Association (KRAPA) has endorsed the concepts for both parks.

Plans for Faulks Park, located at the southern end of Marine Parade (near the boat ramp), include replacing and relocating an ageing and partially decommissioned toilet block and replacing play equipment.

The council has developed a plan to revitalise Ed Parker Rotary Park, located on the north eastern side of the Cudgen Creek Bridge.

The plan addresses several issues including creek bank erosion and controlling access to the park by vehicles.

Works identified in the plan are not currently funded.

However, it will identify the works to be completed as funds and other resources become available, with Rotary members planning to undertake many of the improvements as club projects.

Main elements of the draft plan include stabilising the creek bank, including measures to control access to the creek.
