Toowoomba Regional Council is planning to make recreational improvements to Black Gully Linear Corridor Park in Newtown and Captain Cook Recreation Reserve in Wilsonton.

The project aims to encourage people of all ages and abilities to visit and stay longer in these areas.

Potential improvements may include features such as new shared pathways for walking and cycling, additional play/recreational opportunities, shade for playgrounds, improved picnic facilities, improved lighting and car parking and additional trees and landscaping.

Project stages

All park upgrade works will be subject to available capital funding and Council priorities.
