​More space to move at Spinnaker Park

Locals will have more space to stretch their legs with a new pathway being constructed at Gladstone Ports Corporation's (GPC) Spinnaker Park, ready to use during Active August.

The 320 metre extension will link up to the existing pathway, creating an entire loop around the picturesque parkland.

Spinnaker Park will be closed for night works at 6pm from 27 July until 31 July and a road closure will be in place.

Local contractor Fulton Hogan has also been engaged to complete the asphalt works and the pathway is expected to be complete by mid-August.

The new pathway goes hand-in-hand with GPC's new community fitness initiative, Active August to encourage locals to embrace the outdoors and move more.

Active August 2020 officially kicks off on 1 August, running for a whole month with exciting challenges for participants big and small, fitness events and plenty of prizes to keep you motivated

People, Community and Sustainability General Manager Rowen Winsor said the pathway extension will provide a better experience for park users.

“We're always looking for ways to improve community facilities at GPC and this new extension will give locals and their four-legged friends waterfront views of our harbour on their leisurely walks," Ms Winsor said.
