Consultation has concluded

Quality green activated open spaces are a priority for our residents, workers, and visitors. Park renewals will create better quality open spaces for everyone to enjoy, help keep our city cooler, and support biodiversity in our local region.

Townsville City Council is committed to providing parks, sporting fields and recreation areas with facilities that promote and contribute to the health and well-being of our city.

Through this commitment, Council plans to install new playground equipment and improve community facilities within MacArthur Park, Annandale

This project is funded by the Australian Government under the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCI Program Round 2).

The LRCI program supports local councils to deliver priority local road and community infrastructure projects across Australia, supporting jobs and the resilience of local economies to help communities bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Council welcomes you to participate and have your say on this project. Your feedback will contribute to shaping this park, and guide Council on decision making and planning for the future.
