Consultation has concluded
Council is proposing to upgrade Haithi Park in Kallangur. The park upgrades are intended to include a small local level playground, an access path, park seating and planting to enhance this small park.
Parks and open space play a critical role in providing recreation whilst promoting health and wellbeing for members of the community. In addition, parks provide intrinsic environmental and aesthetic values that also benefit the region.
The existing small playground in Wagner Park on the corner of Duffield and Winter Road Kallangur, was retired in 2013 due to its ageing equipment. The playground was not renewed due to its proximity to nearby roads and the adjacent Sewage Pumping Station. Instead it was decided to relocate a new playground to a more appropriate site nearby when one became available. Haithi Park to the west of Duffield Road was identified as a suitable location following the Scouts move to John Oxley Reserve and the subsequent removal of the ageing Scout building.
Funding for the construction of the new playground has been brought forward to this year following the announcement that Council has secured over $5 million thanks to the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCIP). The LRCIP funding will enable Council to fast-track the delivery of almost $7.5 million worth of shovel-ready projects around the region, including construction of Haithi Park playground, which is due for completion by December 2021.
