Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

On the intersection of King Street and Gloucester Road, Buderim has a new panoramic attraction, the Buderim Village Park. Landscaped gardens with a lush village green and sensational panoramic views of the Glasshouse Mountains and the Pacific Ocean are all part and parcel of this three plus hectare public park.

The Council has set aside this area specifically to be a green space for everyone to enjoy. Wide paths zig-zag through the grassy stretches, fringed in places by ferny gardens, trees and Buderim volcanic rock.

If you move to the upper section of the Buderim Village Park, on a clear day the views towards the coastline are superb, with the ocean views interspersed with container and cargo ships and if one is really lucky, a cruise liner. The views to the south embrace the suburban sprawl of Caloundra and Little Mountain.

Magnificent fig trees with their roots bound by large basalt mounds are a sight to behold.

While the excavation work was underway, the Council found bottles and jars showcasing Buderim's heritage and these are now displayed in custom-designed coffee tables in the picnic areas. These bottles are displayed under a layer of specialised glass with their original labels etched into it. It's a wonderfully unique gesture to recognise the historical background of this exceptional park.

New sheltered picnic areas including two new barbecues and lighting for those evening excursions to feel the night-time breezes in the midst of summer have been created, ensuring the views are a constant for everyone.

Artistically-created seating, sometimes concrete, sometimes timber, has been placed strategically throughout the park to capture the breath-taking views of the ocean, turning this new scenic attraction into a true asset for Buderim.

There are still plans afoot for further development, which will include a multi-functional performance area and a childrens' play area as well as public amenities, all subject to future budget considerations by the Council.

The vision for the future is shown on notice boards at the park entrance, but it is evident that this is a sensational outdoor space designed to enhance the community's outdoor living experiences.

I love places like this and it's a good thing to hear of Councils all over the country doing them well. The idea of setting the old bottles in coffee tables is superb.
