Green light for new Springwood Park ring road
The next phase of upgrade works at Springwood Park is set to begin.
A new internal roadway will replace the existing ring road and parking facilities will be upgraded, including provision of more disabled parking spaces.
Stormwater infrastructure, roadway lighting, retaining works and pathways will also be installed.
Once the project is completed, the area around the roadway will be landscaped with new turf and trees.
The Anzac memorial in the park is being retained. Stage 2 of the project includes the upgrade of the playground.
The upgrade, which is expected to take about 4 months (weather permitting), is supported by $1 million from Logan City Council through Division 1 Local Infrastructure Program (LIP) funding, additional parks funding and $500,000 from the Queensland Government.
This Springwood Park Masterplan – Stage 1 was developed with the support of the Queensland Government’s South East Queensland Community Stimulus Program 2021–2024 in association with Council.
The first phase of the upgrade at the park featured a new dog off-leash area and the toilets were replaced.
Division 1 Councillor Lisa Bradley says the one-way road and parking upgrade will further increase access to the popular park in Cinderella Drive.
‘This redevelopment is part of a long-term vision to turn this into a destination park filled with recreational opportunities,’ Cr Bradley says.
‘We are enhancing the park’s natural settings and reinforcing the benefits the facility delivers to the local community.
