Cr Trevina Schwarz said it was important for visitors to the park to have access to reasonable shade and seating areas.

"It has become evident as I visit the park that sheltered seating is at a premium and currently the sheltered seating is inadequate for the volume of families that enjoy this great space," Cr Schwarz said.

"Jimboomba Park will see an upgrade in the coming weeks with new facilities being added to this community space. The project consists of installing two shelters and an additional bin."

Work is expected to start in early April, weather permitting.

The works come as Logan City Council prepares to hold a Jimboomba Summit at Cusack Lane on Thursday, March 21.

The summit will feature talks from experts and interactive displays outlining the future of Jimboomba. 

Residents are encouraged to share their ideas on potential projects for the area.

Cr Schwarz said community viewpoints made a difference.

"...Places like Beenleigh and Springwood have hosted summits and now there are funded projects under way in both those city centres including bike and pedestrian paths, street scaping, public wi-fi and more." Cr Schwarz said.

The summit will include an afternoon session from 3.30pm to 6pm and an evening session from 6pm to 8pm.
