A new children’s bike facility, where kids can learn and practice their biking skills, has been set for development and construction this October at the Kangaroo Gully Road Park in Bellbowrie.
Following the community consultation in 2019, the Brisbane City Council plans to install pathways and other facilities where the children can improve on their bikes whilst the rest of the family enjoy other recreational activities.
The complete development will cover the following scope as confirmed by Councillor Greg Adermann:
- installation of new park embellishments, including a new picnic shelter, pedestrian pathways, seating, a drinking fountain and bins
- construction of a retaining wall along the eastern boundary of the works, and
- landscaping works, including planting of shade trees, screening trees, shrubs and turfing
The new park will replace the playground and picnic area, which were removed due to health and safety hazards.
Enhancing Kangaroo Gully Road Park will be a welcome recreational retreat that will “cater to a broad spectrum of the community,” Mr Adermann said.
Construction is expected to finish in early 2021 and will likely entail changes in the access pathways whilst work is ongoing. Residents near the park will see signages for alternative routes and will be informed of disruptive noises, dust and vibration.
