Oxley Creek Transformation is hosting a ‘Graceville Riverside Parklands Community Ideas Day’ to seek the local community’s thoughts on the existing parkland facilities as well as ideas for new facilities and activities.
Enjoy a family day out and have your say on the future of the Parklands with live music, a sausage sizzle, coffee and ice-cream vans, inflatable obstacle course, Zumba and Yoga classes, giant board games and demonstrations with local clubs.
Details: 12-4pm on Saturday, 30 November 2019 at Graceville Riverside Parklands (Simpsons Playground), Graceville.
Oxley Creek Transformation have now released the Archerfield Wetlands Precinct Plan.
The Precinct Plan will see 150 hectares of green space, just 12 kilometres from Brisbane’s city centre, transformed into a one-of-a-kind recreational destination and environmental asset for Brisbane.
A rich history
Oxley Creek is one of the major tributaries of the Brisbane River. It is Brisbane's longest creek and the only sand-based creek in the city.
Beginning in the forested mountain ranges of the Scenic Rim, south of Ipswich, it joins the Brisbane River approximately 70 kilometres downstream at Tennyson. Oxley Creek enjoys a natural drainage area of 270 square kilometres, spread across three local government areas, making it Brisbane’s largest creek catchment, but is also one of our most urbanised and polluted waterways.
