Shade sails to cool searing slide, Nambour
Children will soon be able to use the playground outside Sunshine Coast Council chambers in Nambour, once more.
The slide in the forecourt was previously closed due to the metal structure getting too hot to play on, but Council has a solution.
A number of shade sails were being installed over the structure with work set to be complete by Friday.
Councillor David Law said he was pleased the slide would soon be open again for youngsters to enjoy under the watchful eye of their parents.
“Council listened to the community’s feedback and has come up with a great solution that’s sun-safe, visually appealing and doesn’t impede the existing seating area nearby or at the top of the amenities block,”Cr Law said.
Council engaged local contractor Cool Outdoor Living to create and install the shade sail.
