Fairways Park - Master Plan

Project Overview

Council has secured appropriate land for the proposed regional park in the Hatton Vale-Kensington Grove area. The park is intended to 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. Council notes that the park will need to be developed over a number of years to ensure sustainability and value-for-money.

Council encourages the local community to get involved in the design of the overall park features and the stages of development. To maximise the effectiveness of your ideas and feedback, it is important to gain an understanding about the opportunities and limitations of the site. Please refer to our FAQs section for more information.

The Master Plan for the proposed park will need to consider the long term needs and aspirations of these growing communities and should demonstrate equity with the rest of the Lockyer Valley Region while looking for opportunities for innovations and uniqueness.

The proposed site for the park is 14 hectares of currently undeveloped flood-free land on a slightly sloping block. For more information on the site considerations refer to our FAQs section.

Keep an eye on the various opportunities and ways to get involved and have your say by regularly reviewing this engagement site.
