The concrete pathway connecting River Heart Parklands to Bob Gamble Park is open at all times from Tuesday 1 August 2023. The remainder of the parklands remains closed for now to ensure community safety. Works to permanently redesign and reconstruct the park will take some time. Engineering and design assessment works are currently underway and it is estimated that the remaining closed areas will re-open in mid-2024 (weather and site conditions permitting). Project information and updates are available on council’s interactive maps for all works under construction or planned within our Flood Recovery Program: https://maps.ipswich.qld.gov.au/floodrecovery
