Myall Creek revitalisation reaches final stage

The final stage of a masterplan to revitalise Dalby’s Myall Creek precinct has commenced construction this week, as part of a continued commitment to delivering new lifestyle opportunities for residents and visitors.

The Myall Creek Parkland has undergone a series of upgrades as part of a vision to reinvent the area as a key recreational hub for the region, with works now commencing around the Amos Street precinct.

Spokesperson for Parks, Open Spaces and Cemeteries Councillor Carolyn Tillman said works were now moving to the toy library site, with a package of upgrades underway to revitalise the area as a key events and recreational space.

“Council has continued to work closely with the Dalby Welcoming Committee to see its initial concept plan come to fruition over the past few years,” Cr Tillman said.

“Works have now commenced around the existing toy library site, which will enhance the park as a social and recreational destination for local and visitors alike, with upgrades focusing on celebrating the structure as an important slice of Dalby’s history.

“The project will include rehabilitating the old brick pump house which happened to be the location of one of the first bores in Dalby.

“A new timber deck will be constructed around the structure along with feature lighting and shade structures to enhance the site as a key historic landmark.

“Works will also include upgraded landscaping, irrigation, and lighting which will support the site as a vibrant events space, ensuring we can build on the success of previous events like Dalby’s Delicious and DeLIGHTful festival.

Several stages of the Myall Creek Vision have already been completed in partnership with the Dalby Welcoming Committee, including the installation of new pathways to connect the precinct with the existing road network, new park benches and landscaping, a new playground at Jimbour Street, and new gym equipment near the Dalby Aquatic Centre.

Works on the final stage of the project are expected to be completed early next year. The park area around the Toy Library will be closed during construction, and Council thanks the community for its cooperation during this time.

This stage of works, totalling $2.026 million has been 50% funded by State Government’s local government grants and subsidies program.
