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.

Council, with funding from the Australian Government's Grants Programme, is committed to the long term plan for residents to enjoy Brisbane's beautiful climate and connect with family and friends.
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.
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.
Council is currently investigating funding opportunities to support the implementation of the potential concepts which will form part of the draft plan. Following this, Council will be able to release the draft plan for feedback from local residents and sporting clubs in the precinct.
Consultation on the draft plan and finalisation of the plan will occur in 2020.
