USERS of the rail trail will now be able to get a much needed refreshment in Wondai.
The rail trail at Wondai has a new feature of a water fountain that was paid for by the Wondai Lions Club.
The bubbler is just one of many things the Lions has donated to Wondai including barbecue areas and shelters.
Cr Ros Heit said the Wondai Lions donated the money to the South Burnett Regional Council for the bubbler to be installed.
"It's going to be an asset for the rail trail and to the park,” Cr Heit said.
"There will eventually be a plaque on it to say it was donated by the Lions.”
Not only will the blubber be used for riders on the rail trail but also for the Wondai parkrun that has been growing in numbers since it began.
"The bubbler is a useful asset for walkers or riders on the rail trail,” Cr Heit said.
She said the work on the rail trail was almost finished and had already been started to be used by cycling clubs.
The official opening of the trail will be the South Burnett and Cherbourg on Show weekend in October.
It will be finished being sealed well before then as well.
The Wondai Lions are also on the lookout for new members to continue what is the second oldest Lions club in Queensland.
As well as the bubbler for the park, the Lions also recently donated $1500 for the Blue Light disco as well as for a device that senses body heat for the SES.
Wondai Lions member Percy Iszlaub said the trail would also be good for Wondai's keen fishermen who haven't been able to access Barambah Creek by road until now that the trail has been built.
