About the project
The Enoggera Creek sport and recreation precinct is a valuable active green space in a growing city that offers many active and healthy outcomes to the community.
Future planning will help ensure the ongoing vibrancy and sustainability of the precinct for sport and recreation participants, local residents, businesses and visitors. It will also manage amenity for people living in the suburbs surrounding these parks.
The precinct plan will guide future investment, development and management of this popular sport and recreation destination.

The Enoggera Creek sport and recreation precinct will deliver a space that:
- achieves better traffic management to minimise vehicle impacts for pedestrians, cyclists and park users
- rethinks how we build resilient parks that respond to floodwater impacts
- aims to achieve pedestrian-friendly environments with safe linkages throughout the precinct
- protects the natural habitat whilst investing in new places to relax and enjoy
- engages with residents and community groups to develop synergies and social opportunities for all ages
- promotes next generation thinking in shaping sustainable recreation and sporting facilities for a healthier urban precinct.
Community engagement - have your say
Council conducted preliminary community engagement between 18 October and 2 December 2018. This engagement was the first step in gathering insights on how the precinct is valued and currently used by the community. Key values from the preliminary feedback received included:
- cycle and walking paths
- Enoggera Creek
- Northey Street City Farm
- sports diversity.
Community feedback has informed the initial concept design phase of the new Windsor Sport and Community Park. Council is now seeking your feedback on the draft concept plan for the park. Have your say by completing the online survey by 28 July 2019.
The draft Enoggera Creek Sport and Recreation Precinct Plan will be released for community feedback (via online survey) on 23 September 2019, with feedback closing on 19 October 2019. The precinct plan will be finalised in late 2019.
