About the project

Council is creating more to see and do in a clean and green Brisbane meaning more opportunities to enjoy Brisbane's beautiful climate and connect with family and friends in the places that make our city great.

Works for Ray Lynch Park include:

  • a new picnic shelter
  • new playground equipment
  • outdoor fitness equipment
  • installation of a new security light
  • new accessible paths through the park to allow for easy pedestrian travel.

The park area is located between Halsey Street and Seville Street and borders the Holland Park Library. The current project provides an opportunity to complement the recent library refurbishment work. It also provides a sympathetic renewal of facilities in Ray Lynch Park to position the combined Council assets in this location as an important local community hub.

This project will replace the much loved and well used playground with more modern equipment that provides improved access and play opportunities for children of all abilities.
