Toowoomba Regional Council (TRC) today (July 20) approved the Carly Hibberd Park Master Plan Report to guide future park upgrades.
TRC Parks and Recreation Services portfolio leader Cr Tim McMahon said two rounds of extensive public engagement, including public information days at the Kearneys Spring park in February and March this year that drew more than 100 residents, had contributed to the master plan’s development.
Cr McMahon said the master plan would set the vision for the park for the next 10 to 20 years.
“Endorsing the master plan will guide future design directions and allow Council to deliver upgrades for the growing Kearneys Spring community in line with the required standards for a District Recreation Park,” Cr McMahon said.
“Carly Hibberd Park was identified in the 2016 Toowoomba Region Open Space Strategy as requiring upgrades by 2022-23 to cater for the needs of the surrounding residential suburb and future growth areas.
