Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Toowoomba Regional Council has commenced a master planning process as part of an upgrade to Pioneer Park, Goombungee. The master plan will be used to guide the future improvements of this park to a district-level standard.

It will set out the vision for Pioneer Park for the next 10 to 20 years and make recommendations for park development works when budgets for development works are made available.

It is important to note that master plans are high-level aspirational concept-style documents that present as best they can on an agreed development position between all people involved. The identification of potential future works in no way confirms that funding has been or will be allocated.

We would like to take this opportunity to hear from you regarding what you like / don’t like about the park and what you would like improved within and around the park. More generally, what improvements could be made to parks in Goombungee?

What's in a district park?

Pioneer Park has existing infrastructure, but generally park embellishments typically for a district park will include: play opportunities (formal playground, nature play); recreational opportunities (kick-about space, ball wall, throw hoop); park furniture (tables, seats, bins, drink fountain); fencing or bollards (if considered necessary to keep vehicles out of park); tree planting for shade, amenity and screening; pedestrian pathway; signage (park name and regulatory); shelter (if no natural shade opportunities), BBQs (already present), bike racks, car parking, exercise equipment, paths, and toilet facilities/amenities (already present).
