We're planning to upgrade Emmerson Park in Flinders Street, Centenary Heights and provide additional improvements to the Toowoomba Waterbird Habitat in Waterbird Drive, Rangeville. The maps below show these park areas (click images to enlarge).

The proposed upgrades are part of Toowoomba Regional Council’s East Creek Corridor District Recreation Park Improvements Project. The project aims to improve park nodes along and near the East Creek Parkland Corridor. Parks nodes may include features such as playgrounds, landscaping, picnic facilities and other recreational and support facilities which encourage people to visit and stay longer at our parks.

The project will also consider future parking, accessibility and minor recreational improvements at Lake Annand Park in South Toowoomba and future improvements that may be required to the East Creek corridor in Middle Ridge.


Have your say on Emmerson Park and the Toowoomba Waterbird Habitat

Draft concept designs have been developed for Emmerson Park and the Toowoomba Waterbird Habitat. The draft concept designs include improvements to recreational facilities including playgrounds, landscaping, pathways and picnic areas.


Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the draft concept designs for each park during February 2020.

Community feedback is being reviewed and will be used to guide the development of the final concept designs presented to Council from mid-2020.

Please note, any proposed future upgrade works will be subject to available capital funding and Council priorities.
