About the project

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

As part of the Lutwyche Corridor Neighbourhood Plan, Council will deliver upgrades to the new Chalk Street Park to provide more recreation for local residents. The aim is to create a local recreation park, shaped by the local community, that will provide a green space for residents and opportunities for activity and relaxation.

Community feedback received on the draft concept plan was supportive of the proposed park embellishments and showed a preference for picnicking and socialising facilities, a children's playground, quiet reflective areas and walking and sporting activities. 

As shown in the final concept plan, the project will deliver:

  • new picnic shelters and an accessible drinking fountain to provide a gathering space for park visitors
  • new playground equipment
  • open space for informal sport and activities
  • a new pathway through the park
  • a new planting area with shade trees to separate the playground from the street
  • a new park entry
  • bollards along the park boundary
  • new shade tree planting to open space
  • pathway and streetscape planting
  • a safety fence to the playground
  • shade for the playground
  • fitness equipment
  • bike repair station
  • off-street parking on Marita Street.
