A meeting was held with Bundaberg Regional Council on 4 February 2014 where President, Jennifer Waldron and Secretary, Leone Wilson discussed our ideas and vision for the beautification and future development of the War Nurses Memorial Park precinct.
The broad concept is to divide the park into two areas:
One being for commemorations, and would include the area covered by War Nurses Memorial Pavilion and the new Australian Service Nurses Memorial Wall.
Second area would be for developing a history of service nurses area, including some new gardens and improving the amenities available within the park.
As a result of these very positive discussions, the Council’s Parks and Planning Design Team will work on designing/developing a Master Plan for the park.
The draft master plan is expected to be ready mid year, and will guide any future development within the park to ensure the historic links with the War Nurses Memorial Pavilion are maintained and future amenities and projects remain focused on honouring the service of Australian service nurses – our “War Nurses”.
Once the draft master plan has been completed, I can provide more information on the elements we hope to develop in the future.
