About the project

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

As St Lucia and surrounding areas continue to grow, it is important to ensure our parks can contiue to meet the recreational needs of residents. Guyatt Park currently provides a hub of active and relaxation opportunities and is well used by the local community for the playgrounds, table tennis and picnic facilities.

Council is looking to enhance and diversify the recreational opportunities throughout the popular green space to support healthy lifestyles and ensure the park can cater to the broader community.

The existing playground near Bryce Street caters to older children and was upgraded in the 2014-15 financial year. This project aims to refurbish the junior playground near Hiron Street to bring it up to a modern standard, in line with the community's needs. The project will also aim to deliver an outdoor fitness challenge course that will provide new and fun athletic opportunities for ages 12 years up to an adult level ability.

The overall goal of the project is to support increased activation of Guyatt Park and deliver a vibrant, liveable space that builds on the existing well-used facilities, by providing more opportunities for outdoor activity.

Have your say

Council is seeking community feedback to help shape the look and feel for the proposed enhancements to ensure the park caters to the growing needs of the community and suits the character of the local area.
