Coronation Park master plan approved
Following a period of public consultation, Toowoomba Regional Council approved the Coronation Park master plan on 17 September 2019.
A copy of the master plan (PDF 9MB) is available in the Documents Library on the top right-hand side of this page.
The proposed upgrades include additional tree planting, improved pathways and car parking, new lighting and shelters, the renewal of ageing playground equipment, a kick-about area and a new toilet block.
The park was identified for an upgrade to meet the population growth of the area around Harristown.
The master plan sets out the vision for Coronation Park for the next 10 to 20 years and makes recommendations for development work when budgets are made available.
The master plan aspires to celebrate the natural beauty of the current space while creating an authentic and distinctive park.
One of the major recommendations of the master plan is the construction of a new toilet block that will be accessible for people with a disability.
Throughout the park, new lighting will allow for night time use of key activity areas and new shelters with barbecues will add to the recreational use of the park.
The plan for the upgraded playground equipment includes new play mounds that have slides and climbing elements, as well as a flying fox and triple swing set.
There will be a new kickabout area to activate the space and the dog off-leash area will be retained and include some minor improvements.
Council will also be looking to maximise the space for car parking to allow visitors to better access the park.
The final master plan was compiled following several consultation opportunities earlier this year where residents had their say on future improvements to the park.
The master plan is an aspirational plan that will guide future capital projects and upgrades for the area.
It is important to note that any future upgrade works will be dependent on funding and Council priorities.
Council thanks residents for their feedback and looks forward to working with the community as this project develops.
