Would you support turning the vacant land on either side of Birdwood Road into a new public park?
As our city grows we need to ensure that land is put aside for new public parkland to help accommodate new residents. Norman Creek runs through the middle of this land and is a crucial habitat for fish, birds, lizards, small mammals and other native wildlife. We could connect and extend both Joachim Street Park and Roseglen street park.
With broad public support, I think we could push for the Council to acquire the land as part of their overall Norman Creek catchment strategy. Brisbane City Council’s Norman Creek 2012-2031 Project aims to ‘return the Norman Creek catchment to a more natural state’, through the improvement of parkland and adjoining waterways. A budget of $5.25 million has been set aside for this.
The land is large enough to accommodate multiple uses including potentially children’s playgrounds, BBQ and picnic areas, dog parks, community gardens and sporting facilities like a basketball court.
