Loganlea, Queensland, Australia
As part of a substantial overland stormwater corridor, Stoneleigh Environmental Park adjoins the Stoneleigh residential development and provides a ‘breathing space’ for the surrounding community.
This large development is positioned adjacent to a waterway corridor and as a result includes a significant amount of outdoor space and recreational opportunities for residents of Stoneleigh and other users.
Part of the site involved the creation of a parkland that included a large revegetation zone. A more formalised parkland zone forms the interface between the rehabilitation area and the residential areas of the subdivision.
The landscape works included re-vegetation works to the creek corridor and creation of wetlands, maintenance access pathways, open grassed areas, planting of locally native species and park facilities such as footpaths, shelters, way-finding markers and fencing.
Large bio-filtration devices incorporated into the parkland and football fields filter stormwater runoff prior to it filtering into the nearby downstream creek.
