About the project

The Wilson Outlook Reserve upgrade will improve access to Brisbane’s most sought-after vantage points for some of our city’s major events.

Project benefits

The works will provide exciting new park features for local residents and the community to enjoy, including: 

  • a timber observation deck at the cliff edge of the reserve, with new balustrading
  • park furniture consisting of seating, tables, and bins
  • feature lighting to illuminate paths and the new deck
  • landscaping including gardens and turf
  • minor retaining walls and new pathways with concrete paving.

The existing exercise equipment will remain in its current location and existing trees will be retained.

Construction impacts

Throughout the construction the local community can expect temporary footpath closures and detours around the site, construction noise, increased truck movements, and low levels of vibration and dust.

Signage will be in place to help pedestrians navigate the temporary closures but at all times, Council will endeavour to maintain access for pedestrians and cyclists around the park.

Project timing

Construction started in late May 2019 and is expected to be completed by mid-2019, weather and construction conditions permitting.

Works will generally take place between 7am and 5pm Monday to Saturday.

Council is committed to keeping the community informed of construction in their area and will provide advance notification of any out-of-hours activities.
