Lord Mayor Graham Quirk has unveiled plans for new sports parks across the suburbs of Brisbane as part of a $351 million budget commitment to enhance Brisbane’s leisure and lifestyle opportunities.
The new facilities are part of a sporting package that includes a new netball precinct at Wakerley.
Brisbane City Council is planning to construct a $1.9m high quality sporting precinct at 880 Manly Road, Wakerley which will provide increased sporting and active space facilities for Wakerley and surrounding Bayside suburbs.
A fishing platform is being installed at Carmichael Park in Tingalpa as part of the Active River Program. The platform will be installed where Bulimba Creek flows through Carmichael Park.
The new fishing platform will give keen fishermen a new opportunity to drop a line in Bulimba Creek, taking advantage of this quiet creek-side location that is already home to local cricket and soccer clubs.
