Upgraded Lavelle Lagoon Park
The Lavelle Lagoon Park in Greenbank is set for an upgrade, after a joint investment by the federal government and the Logan City Council.
Wright MP Scott Buchholz and Logan City Councilwoman Natalie Willcocks announced $600,000 in funding to make the improvements.
Buchholz said the federal government is investing in the local community to build better infrastructure, support the local community and make Greenbank a better place to live.
“These fantastic upgrades to Lavelle Lagoon will completely transform the park, provide a better place for residents, and transform what is underutilized space.
“Our funding partnership is making upgrades possible, with $350,000 funding from the Australian Government for the project, which will see a new playground, improved seating and parking.
“This will provide a vital element boosting our local community, supporting local jobs and economic growth while providing lasting improvements that will benefit residents for years to come.
$1 billion in funding is being provided under the third phase of the LRCI program to help local councils across Australia improve their local road networks and deliver priority community infrastructure projects.
Logan City Councilwoman Natalie Willcocks said the park improvements are aimed at providing better infrastructure for the local community.
“We have listened and acted on community feedback, this area has been underutilized and has not attracted the investment it needs, in partnership with the Australian Government we will change this.
“Logan City has many great parks and green spaces and the improvements we will be making here at Lavelle Lagoon will meet the desires of the community and join the many other great local parks we have.
“I’m excited to see this project get started so our residents can enjoy it sooner.”
