Council completes renewal of William Ross Park


Redland City Council has completed an upgrade to William Ross Park in the heart of Cleveland.

Mayor Karen Williams said the new facilities in this neighbourhood park were already proving popular with local families and visitors.

“I’m delighted Council was able to deliver this upgrade in time for the recent Easter long weekend,” Cr Williams said.

“The play equipment, along with the new picnic facilities, water bubbler and pathways both across and around the park, have been popular with visitors of all ages.

“There have been a lot of young families moving into Cleveland and these improvements will provide an opportunity for children, parents and grandparents to enjoy time together in the lush backdrop of this beautiful park.”

Division 2 Councillor Peter Mitchell said the park upgrades had been welcomed by the surrounding community.

“The bike skills track is proving very popular with its traffic signs, intersections and even a train station with a train track rubber pathway,” Cr Mitchell said.

“There is a new basket swing, spinner and balance log, and play unit with ropes and ladders catering to different abilities and age groups.

“The basketball half-court will also be bustling soon, with the final retouches being completed next week, subject to weather.”
