Park upgrades continue to branch out in Meandarra 

Leo Gordon Apex Park in Meandarra will be revitalised with new facilities and extensive landscaping as part of Western Downs Regional Council’s local stimulus package to create jobs and boost the liveability of the region.

Works to enrich the popular park will include new picnic shelters, a BBQ shelter, walkways, new trees, turfing and irrigation throughout the space.  

Council Spokesperson for Recreational Spaces and Cemeteries Councillor Carolyn Tillman said once complete, the project would benefit locals and visitors alike.  

Leo Gordon Park is a very popular spot in our community and it’s in a prime position to welcome travellers passing through the beautiful town of Meandarra,” Cr Tillman said.  

It is important that we continue to maintain our parks and open spaces right across the region as they are a valued part of the community and play a big role in the liveability for our residents.  

“The completed project will not only provide a more modern space for our community to enjoy but will also entice our visitors to stop and stay a little longer in our towns.”

The Leo Gordon Apex Park upgrade is included in Council’s extensive COVID-19 Recovery Package and will support local business with the majority of materials and labour sourced within the Western Downs 

Construction is expected to commence during the first week of November.
