About the project
The Bill Brown Reserve sports park extension delivers on outcomes from the Fitzgibbon Parklands Masterplan and will provide sporting facilities for the wider Fitzgibbon and Bracken Ridge communities.
Council’s plan for the project includes:
- four hard courts (with lighting) for netball
- new green open space for recreation
- new roundabout and connecting pathways to adjoining facilities
- a car park with a minimum of 80 parking spaces, including disability access
- general landscaping.
The project includes earthworks to remediate the former landfill, and the relocation of the Bramble Bay Pony Club to the hill to the north of the Hidden World Playground.
This project forms part of a city wide park infrastructure planning program to meet sport and recreational needs of the community. Additional sports facilities may be added in the future, subject to funding availability. This $7 million extension project is funded from development infrastructure contributions collected across the city.
The Bill Brown Reserve sports park extension will provide increased sporting and active space facilities for the Fitzgibbon and Bracken Ridge area.
Council is progressing the design for the project with construction and remediation works anticipated to start in mid-2019, weather and site conditions permitting.
Council is committed to keeping local residents informed of construction activity in their area and will provide advance notification prior to the start of construction for the project.
