A sea of vibrant colours, squeals of joy and a crowd of excited visitors and residents came together for Jingeri Festival on Sunday 5th February, as Shoreline’s first community park – Jingeri Park was officially opened for play.

In celebration of our growing community, more than 1,500 people attended this amazing event, taking part in family-friendly activations, exploring the newly opened display village, connecting with friends and family and experiencing the relaxed lifestyle that is Shoreline.

To officially open the new playscape was Redland City Deputy Mayor, Councillor Julie Talty, Yugambeh Elder Uncle Ted Williams, Quandamooka artist Libby Harward and Minjungbal/Mununjali/Yugambeh artist Uncle Allan Lena, as well as children of Shoreline.

To demonstrate the deep connection Shoreline has to Country, Libby and Uncle Allan spoke with the local children, showcasing the community-inspired park mural – Jingeri Jingeri. They also spoke about the Willy Wagtail along with the important bush tucker and the plants that protect the ecosystems of the bay and the bush that make up Quandamooka and Yugambeh country, that Shoreline is located on.

As the future generation of our Shoreline community, children of all ages explored the new park amenities, including the 8.5 metre lighthouse structure – which pays homage to the iconic Cleveland Point lighthouse.

Community joins forces to celebrate Shoreline

A big shout out to all of the local sporting groups, organisations, community partners and local performers who joined in the festival celebrations, showcasing the very best of the Redlands Coast. These included The Cage Youth Foundation, Redlands Coast Salad Bowl, Neighbourhood Watch Queensland Volunteers in Policing alongside Redland Bay Police, Running Wild Youth Conservation Culture, Containers for Change and Bayside Basketball.

Recently awarded a Shoreline Community Grant, local community organisation Running Wild provided a native welcome seedling to current and future Shoreline residents as well as selling plants to the wider community.

Bayside Basketball was in attendance, running ball drills and mini competitions on the newly opened half court, also situated in the park.

The festival also gave visitors a chance to view the newly opened Shoreline Display Village, which featured family-fun activities, giveaways and a special guest appearance from The Block stars, Jimmy and Tam.

Jingeri Park draws its name from the Yugambeh People, where Jingeri means “welcome”.

The park is a fantastic asset not just for residents but the broader Redlands Coast region, reflecting the stunning bush to bay lifestyle that Shoreline has to offer.
