What would you like to see in Cameron Park?

23 November 2021

Perhaps it’s a modern playground or somewhere for small children to safely ride their bikes?

Cameron Park, Booval has been slated for an upgrade and Ipswich City Council is looking for ideas from the community to shape the project.

Division 3 Councillor Andrew Fechner said council is looking to upgrade the park to meet the recreational needs of those who use it the most.

“We really want to hear from those who are using the facilities what they would like to see in their park,” Cr Fechner said.

“Council is looking at making improvements to the park including to the playground, amenities block, and parking on the Easton Street frontage but we’re keen to hear the community’s ideas.”

Division 3 Councillor Marnie Doyle said as Ipswich continues to evolve and grow, it is important to ensure our parks meet the recreational needs of residents.

“While Cameron Park has magnificent avenues of mature figs and wonderful fitness equipment, council has identified areas that could be improved including the playground which has reached the end of its useful life and the amenities block which doesn’t cater for people of different abilities,” Cr Doyle said

“In the absence of formal parking, some visitors are parking under the figs and inadvertently damaging their roots.

“We want the park to adequately cater for the local community and suit the character of the local area.”

The area this project will focus on is primarily from Easton Street frontage to the centre of the park. The project area does not include Swifts Sports Club or the existing Scout and Country Women’s Association buildings.
