Residents were asked to have a say on a proposed name change for two Gladstone Regional Council parklands. This consultation closed on April 15. Submissions are now in the process of being collated and will be presented to a Council meeting shortly for a decision.
1. Horseshoe Bend, Euleilah Creek
Proposed name: Bevan Larsen Park (download brochure)
In 2000, the Baffle Creek Lions Club approached the then Miriam Vale Shire Council to develop the Horseshoe Bend parkland. Construction was completed in 2004 with local resident Bevan Larsen volunteering many hours in the development of the park facilities and ground clearing. Council records have failed to find formal adoption of the current name Horseshoe Bend, and have proposed to officially rename the park in honour of Mr Larsen.
2. Palm Drive sporting fields, Gladstone
Proposed name: Gerald Mylne Memorial Park (download brochure)
A submission has been made to Council for a proposed name change of the Palm Drive Junior sporting fields in honour of former Gladstone school teacher and businessman Gerald Mylne. Developer of Harbour Views and Rocky Glen estates in West Gladstone, Mr Mylne transferred ownership of a 17-acre West Gladstone parcel of grazing land to Gladstone City Council in 1978. The land was used as Gladstone's waste landfill site before being redeveloped in the 1990's to the Palm Drive Junior sporting fields. Home to junior soccer and cricket, the fields are a valuable community asset.
