Pallara District Park is prominently located at the front door of the new Pallara residential development. This large open space plays a pivotal role within the community’s open space strategy and facilitates healthy living and a positive community culture.
Urbis worked in collaboration with Brisbane City Council and Stockland to deliver this park from concept design, through detail design and construction. The park is a true, feel-good story, having turned an site seemingly incapable of development into a fantastic new facility for a growing community. The site was an existing Brisbane City Council, contaminated landfill site, which required a strategic and considered design methodology, as well as rigorous site testing and preparation.
The park’s overall design rationale was underpinned by key objectives to create a healthy, active and educational lifestyle, in an environment offering a variety of innovative and engaging activities for family members of all ages.
Key features include a 10m tall, central play tower within an activity-mound playground, a learn-to-ride bicycle circuit, outdoor fitness equipment, large community shelters with BBQs, sports field with informal terraced seating, public toilet block and dog park.
A park full of activity, adventure, sport and education. An innovative & positive design solution, delivered on a site previously unable to be developed.
