Waterfront Parklands Link Up
Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC) continues to extend the community's access to Gladstone's waterways, breaking ground on new walking trails in the Gladstone Marina Parklands this week.
Linking up the area behind CQUniversity to opposite the Gladstone Seafarers Centre, the 800 meters of new pathway is the first stage of the project.
People, Community and Sustainability General Manger Rowen Winsor said the two-stage project is laying the foundations to connect GPC's Spinnaker Park to the East Shores Precinct.
“We are looking to link up all of our parklands facilities to provide more areas for the community to enjoy," Ms Winsor said.
“We have so many keen runners, families and your casual afternoon walkers out and about in our parklands and this project is about providing them safe areas to undertake the activities they enjoy.
“The two stages will add just under two kilometres of pathways to our existing facilities – the marina loop just got a lot bigger!"
Stage one of the project is expected to be completed around May, with stage two completion set for the second half of 2020.
Park users should not experience any impacts when visiting the parklands.
