Taigum residents have something to look forward to with Fernwood Place Park set to be transformed into an exciting space the whole family can enjoy.
Brisbane City Council has allocated $700,000 in the 2021-22 budget for enhancements to the park, designed to meet the recreational needs of the community.
Deagon Ward Councillor Jared Cassidy said the park had been earmarked for a major upgrade this financial year.
“As Taigum has seen increased development over the last few years, new parks like this are essential to provide the kind of community facilities residents in our suburbs deserve,” Jared said.
“The upgrades that residents will see include new tree plantings, all-abilities access to playgrounds, natural elements, new pathways, and a new shelter and seating. There will also be two brand-new play areas for kids to enjoy, including a playground, which will be connected to a new forest grove informal play space with sensory elements.
“This new style play space for children will be much more than the traditional playground we are used to, and will give families plenty of reasons to get into the great outdoors.”
Acting Environment, Parks and Sustainability chair Tracy Davis said construction on the new playground was expected to start next year.
