The next time you head down to your local park, you might notice that several changes have been made to ensure it is as energy efficient as possible.
Moreton Bay Regional Council's Seven Energy Saver Groups programme has just received an additional $3million from the state government to improve the environmental credentials of these open spaces.
Among the facilities that are available to residents of property in Deception Bay are electric BBQs and LED footpath lighting.
"The new LED footpath lighting installed along the Sylvan Beach and Deception Bay foreshores is not only brighter, but significantly more energy efficient to run," noted deputy mayor Mike Charlton.
He also revealed that the new BBQs take significantly less time to heat up, minimising the impact on the environment and giving ratepayers more for their money.
Apex Park in Deception Bay is one location where they can be found, as well as Bicentennial Park, Woody Point, Pelican Park in Hornibrook and The Esplanade in Toorbul.
