Priors Pocket Road Park
Priors Pocket Road Park is 50 hectares in size and is located on a bend in the Brisbane River at the southern end of Priors Pocket Road, Moggill.
Priors Pocket Road Park has had several uses in the past, including cattle grazing and sand extraction. Council is now undertaking large scale habitat restoration across the reserve to re-establish native eucalypt forest. This newly established habitat will provide refuge for a diversity of significant species, including koalas.
Visitors to the reserve can enjoy walks, horse riding, picnicking and scenic views of the Brisbane River and surrounds. Priors Pocket Road Park also supports a wide diversity of native birds, making it a popular location for bird watching.
Priors Pocket Road Park concept plan
Brisbane City Council has developed a concept plan to guide the future development and use of the reserve. Using the concept plan, Council will aim to offer a range of low-impact recreational activities and visitor facilities that will meet the needs of the community and contribute to the enhancement of the natural environment.
The concept plan:
- identifies opportunities to restore the natural values of the reserve
- provides safe, attractive outdoor recreation facilities, including new trails, a visitor node and spaces for bird watching
- encourages residents and visitors to visit Council parks and reserves, have fun, and get fit and be healthy outdoors
- improves visual appeal in and around the reserve.
