Fairways Park

Project Overview

Construction of Stage 1 Fairways Park commenced early November 2020.

The park, situated on the eastern side of Fairway Drive, Kensington Grove will provide a range of recreational facilities that meet the long term needs of and reflect the environment in this high growth part of the Lockyer Valley. The 14ha park will be developed over a 10-15 year period to ensure sustainability and high-quality outcomes, with Stage 1 scheduled to be completed late July 2021.

Council undertook two stages of community consultation for the design of the overall park style and themes. Consultation results were provided to specialist park consultants to ensure the designs reflected the majority of community aspirations.

The Master Plan for the proposed park considers the long term needs and aspirations of the growing communities in the region demonstrates equity with the rest of the Lockyer Valley Region while looking for opportunities for innovations and uniqueness.

Stage 1 is jointly funded by the Queensland Government's Unite and Recover Community Stimulus program, the Australian Government's Building Better Regions Fund and Council and will commence construction approximately October 2020. The Park is anticipated to open for use late July or early August 2021.
