Over the past two years our local Community Association (The Yorkeys Knob Community Progress Association, YKCPA in short) has been very active working with the Cairns Regional Council in giving our community a facelift.

There has been a lot of work done on the Foreshore Beautification with new sheltered BBQ facilities, new covered seating facilities, three gym stations for public use, a beautiful new wide path, a new public toilet facility to the Southern end of the foreshore, removal of the timber barriers and installation of new street boundary posts, design and installation of the new children’s adventure playground at the Southern end and a general clean up of some of the vegetation.
There is more to happen by the end of 2018 with the new walkways connecting the path to the beach and viewing platforms to be installed and the continuation of the vegetation management plan to clear the foreshore of unwanted vegetation. It is great to see that the Community is utilising these facilities on a regular basis.
