A new era for much-loved community park

15 December 2017

Upgrades to the Miles ANZAC Park include new fencing, landscaping and WiFi connectivity, with future projects in the works for next year.

Visitors will soon be able to Instagram their Driver Reviver cuppa and biscuits at Miles ANZAC Park, with the family-friendly space now boasting WiFi connectivity along with new fencing and landscaping thanks to Round One of the Works for Queensland program.

Western Downs Regional Council Spokesperson for Parks, Open Spaces and Cemeteries Councillor Carolyn Tillman said the additions not only had great visual impact, but defined the space as a hub for the town.

“It’s a great community space in the heart of Miles, these upgrades have really added to the overall look and feel of the park,” she said.

“Contracts for the ‘Driver Reviver’ shelter and arbour have also been recently awarded, so we’re excited for construction to commence in mid-January next year.

Councillor Tillman said she could easily see the Miles ANZAC Park become a favourite weekend spot for families and visitors alike.

“From the lush green grass, bright play space and those beautifully iconic bottle trees, now to the new fence, landscaping and WiFi, the park is becoming a real landmark for our Miles residents and guests to enjoy for generations to come.”

The Miles ANZAC Park redevelopment was funded in partnership with Origin Energy on behalf of Australia Pacific LNG and the Queensland Government under Round One of the Works for Queensland Program.
