Plans to attract more tourists and residents to Toowoomba city’s escarpment parks to enjoy new and upgraded bushwalking and biking trails is a step closer thanks to the announcement of State Government funding.
Toowoomba Region Mayor Paul Antonio today welcomed the announcement of State Government funding that will aid Council’s plans to unlock the tourism and recreation potential of Toowoomba’s escarpment park trails.
“Council thanks the State Government for its approval of $2.7 million through the Building our Regions program to help realise our bold ambitions for these natural recreation areas,” Mayor Antonio said.
“Council sees great potential to attract tourists and residents, especially people interested in outdoor recreation, to the numerous trails scattered along the Toowoomba city escarpment.
“Council last month endorsed the Picnic Point Parklands Master Plan which will guide future development across designated areas of the 65 hectare parkland, including sections of trails.
