Fairways Regional Park - Master Plan

Project Overview

Council is working with a developer to secure appropriate land for a 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 seeks ideas and feedback from the local community towards the design of the park’s 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.

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.

Update 6 - Concept Designs in Process

Council has engaged an external designer to develop concept plans utilising community feedback from Phase 1 consultation as well site constraints such as environmental and engineering factors. Once concept plans are prepared, they will be made available for feedback in Phase 2 of community consultation. 

Update 5 - Phase 1 consultation results now available

A report on the 1st phase of consultation is now available on the Document Library on this site. The report will also be provided to designers to ensure the community's collective ideas and concerns are considered in proposed designs. Draft designs will be made available to the community for further consultation.

  • Sample Park Design This is an indicative design only, intended to promote discussion and interaction about the types of facilities a future park may include. The community is invited to indicate their preferred facilities, and the locations of them. Council will review the results to better understand the community's priorities and how different elements may interact, which balance, community preferences, safety, shared infrastructure, and a staged approach to developing the park.
