This project is now completed and the park was re-opened to the public on 30 September 2016.
Council will be hosting the official opening of the redeveloped park on Saturday, 19 November 2016 from 10.30am - everyone is welcome to attend!
The Project 2015-2016
Miriam Vale is the southern gateway to the Gladstone Region and continues to be a popular stop for travellers and transport providers.
The development of this open space will enable visitors to rest and enjoy the facilities and local culture in safety.
The redeveloped parkland is also designed as a venue for community events and family gatherings to be held within the grassed and noded areas.
The proposed expansion of this area would include linking Tranquility Walkway into the parkland development as a future stage of this project.
Construction is expected to begin in early 2016.
The Concept Design, which was approved by Council in December 2013, incorporates the heritage elements that have identified Miriam Vale and its past history.
This will be enhanced through coordinated signage, renovation of built infrastructure and horticultural attention to the significant trees.
The railway station precinct will be enhanced and the war memorial elevated through the reinstatement of open grassed surrounds.
The design provides new structures including a travellers' comfort stop, community workshop and youth meeting centre near the existing CWA. The centralisation of these buildings will enable the sharing of essential services, and provide close access to expanded carparking and proposed open space areas.
