A NEW $270,000 park is now open at Yamanto.

The park at 29 Tulip Street includes playground equipment, landscaping, lighting and a covered picnic area with seating and power points.

Division 10 Councillor David Pahlke said the local community had been quick to embrace the former greenfield site.

“The picnic area offers views to the mountains and can be used until 10pm. It’s already proving to be a popular choice for families who are keen to take advantage of the long summer days,” Cr Pahlke said.

“There’s plenty of seating, shade and space to get out and kick a ball or try your hand at cricket, another summer favourite.

“The construction was originally scheduled in three stages, but we were able to defer and build everything at once to minimise disruptions to the community and deliver a completed park in time for the upcoming Christmas holidays.”

Cr Pahlke said a new footpath provided additional park access from nearby Iris Court.

“This is one of more than 500 parks and reserves across the Ipswich region,” he said.

“We now have more than 5,000ha of open space in Ipswich, offering all sorts of recreation opportunities for families.”

Amanda and Tim Rossow enjoy the new Tulip Street Park with daughters Summer, Savannah and Lyla alongside Division 10 Councillor David Pahlke.
