Archerfield Wetlands receives green light for a major parkland, plus new Discovery Trail underway
Development approval has been secured to deliver a $22 million world-class parkland at Archerfield Wetlands by 2023. Located in the heart of the 20-kilometre Oxley Creek corridor, south of the Ipswich Motorway and adjacent to Archerfield Airport, the 150-hectare Archerfield Wetlands site will not only cater to the needs of the local community, but will become a unique signature destination within the Oxley Creek corridor for all Brisbane residents and visitors.
Plans approved for Archerfield Wetlands include new facilities for the community to connect with nature and each other, including a large adventure play space featuring an exciting water play area, a youth hub and basketball court, an event lawn and a catchment centre focused on the environmental rehabilitation of the Oxley Creek catchment.
Archerfield Wetlands Discovery Trail
The Archerfield Wetlands Discovery Trail, is scheduled to open in 2022. The nearly 3-kilometre-long Discovery Trail will unlock access to the 150-hectare site, giving residents and visitors the opportunity to explore the wetland and creek-side landscapes.
