Wordsworth Park Upgrade

Council is committed to providing parks, sporting fields and recreational areas that promote active lifestyles, bring people together, and contribute to the wellbeing of our city.

Background

Wordsworth Park is the only park space in the suburb of Woodstock and has relatively underdeveloped facility assets. As the only large park in the area, Council has recognised that it has the capacity to be developed into a district destination park that serves Woodstock and surrounding residents. The first stage of this process is to conduct consultations with the community and the key stakeholder groups.

Suggested Improvements

These include:

  • Upgrade and seal off-road parking bay area
  • Upgrade to the lighting of the park and amenities
  • Upgrade to the toilet facilities
  • Upgrade to the horse stalls facilities
  • New recreational facilities including: electric BBQ, shelter, picnic shade and tables, small bicycle 'Pump Track', mini skate park, lawn bowls area, rebound wall for tennis practice, new play equipment suitable for multiple age groups with shade.

The community consultation also proposes additional shelters, seating, irrigation, landscaping and drainage.

Consultation

The community consultation of Wordsworth Park will address the immediate and future needs of the park, and progressively develop the park to provide improved sporting and recreational opportunities for community use.

Consultation information is available at our Have Your Say Townsville website.
