Brisbane City Council undertook community consultation on an opportunities plan for Grinstead Park, Shand Street Park (no. 100) and Corbett Street Park (also known as Shand Street Park (no. 131)) in November and December 2019. This feedback will inform the final concept plan, which will be finalised in mid-2020.

Council is committed to keeping Brisbane clean and green, making out 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 helped shape the opportunities plan which includes new picnic facilities with shelters, seating and barbecues, as well as new pathway connections and improved accessibility throughout the parks.
The plan includes the potential to enhance the existing facilities in the park, such as:
- improvements to Grinstead park playground with more features and nature play elements
- improvements to the skate half pipe surface in Shand Street Park (no. 100)
- additional pathway links with scooter and skate features.
The project is also investigating providing new recreational facilities and activities such as a children's bicycle learn-to-ride facility, BMX features adjoining the existing bikeway through the parks, a nature-themed discovery trail and an interpretive signage trail to educate visitors about flora and fauna in the area.

Community consultation was undertaken in November and December 2019.
Council undertook community consultation on the opportunities plan to help decide which features are included in the project.
