Project information

Council is committed to keeping Brisbane clean and green, making our city liveable and sustainable for future generations.

The three adjoining parks are well used by the community for a range of recreational activities, including use of the playgrounds, multi-use games and sporting facilities, exercise equipment and picnic facilities.

The project aims to:

  • enhance these existing facilities
  • diversify the recreational opportunities throughout this well-connected green space
  • ensure any upgrades cater to a broad spectrum of the community.

Community feedback received on the opportunities plan was supportive of the proposed park and showed a priority for enhancing Grinstead Park playground, providing a new children's learn-to-ride facility and maintaining open space areas throughout the parks.

The final opportunities plan highlights the proposed elements that will be investigated for delivery as part of the next phase of the project. These elements include:

  • enhancing the Corbett Street playground with a picnic shelter and drinking fountain
  • defining the Grinstead Park edge along Shand Street with fencing and/or new vegetation
  • replacing the Grinstead Park toilet block and improving the pathway and disabled access to the car park
  • enhancing the Grinstead Park playground with additional play options, nature plan/discovery trail, seating areas, improved disabled access and potential play links across the gully
  • installing a new children's bicycle learn-to-ride facility in Grinstead Park
  • enhancing Grinstead Park picnic facilities
  • providing a picnic shelter next to the fitness and multi-use games area in Grinstead Park
  • improving the surfacing around the skate half pipe, providing a pathway link to the bikeway that includes scooter/skate features and providing potential BMX features off the existing bikeway in Shand Street Park
  • providing a picnic shelter at the basketball court in Shand Street Park
  • maintaining open space areas
  • providing an interpretive signage trail to educate visitors about flora and fauna in the area.
