Graceville Riverside Parklands draft Precinct Plan Community Green

Graceville Riverside Parklands Precinct Plan

Oxley Creek Transformation is planning for parkland improvements associated with the Graceville Riverside Parklands Precinct located at Graceville Avenue and Nadine Street, Graceville.


Situated at the northern end of the Oxley Creek Transformation corridor, just seven kilometres from the CBD, and adjoining both Oxley Creek and the Brisbane River, the Parklands Precinct has the potential to become a significant gateway entry into the 20-kilometre recreation and environmental corridor as well as an exciting destination hub for community and visitors alike.

Background

The Graceville Riverside Parklands Precinct (Precinct) includes Graceville Riverside Parkland, Simpsons Playground, Nadine Street Park, Graceville Avenue Park and Bert St Clair Oval. Planning for new community facilities, activities, green corridor connectivity and access to active and recreational trails within this Precinct is a key strategic outcome of the Oxley Creek Transformation Master Plan.

Graceville Riverside Parklands, a key site within the Precinct, is set to become a key gateway entry into the 20-kilometre Oxley Creek corridor and a destination for water-based activity and recreation. 

Initial objectives for the Parkland include:

  • Improving visual and physical connections to the river and creek.
  • Upgrading the existing picnic and play facilities.
  • Improving the parkland’s vehicle entry and parking.
  • Acknowledging the possibility of flooding in the design and delivery of new Parkland infrastructure.
  • Maintaining and, where possible, supporting the enhancement of the existing local Club lease facilities.
  • Celebrating the mature trees located within the Parkland.
  • Supporting corridor-wide improvements to water quality, bank stability and riparian habitat.
