Townsville City Council is committed to providing parks, sporting fields and recreational areas that promote active lifestyles, bring people together and contribute to the wellbeing of our city.

Background

Wordsworth Park is the only park space in the suburb of Woodstock which Council recognises as having the capacity to be developed into a district destination park that serves Woodstock and the surrounding residents.

Community consultations encouraged community members and key stakeholder groups to have their say throughout Apri l2019 regarding the facilities they would like to see within Wordsworth Park .

A survey was conducted, which closed at 5pm, Tuesday 30 April with a total of 81 responses received. Council thanks all participants for providing their input in shaping the parks future.

Key findings that Council received from the survey were:

  • Provision of electricity to the park
  • Improving barrier fencing to prevent unauthorised vehicle access
  • Improve lighting
  • Upgrade the playground
  • Improve the parks irrigation.

Community Consultation – Round 2
