Improvements have Lobley Park looking its best

Improvements to one of Ipswich’s much-loved local parks – Lobley Park on Warwick Road at Churchill – have been completed and are now ready for residents to enjoy.

The works completed include replacing the existing timber bollards with a 1.2m high aluminium fence and new signage at the park’s entrance.

Landscaping was also undertaken including upgrading the existing park gardens and replanting in selected areas.

Lobley Park is renowned for its mock cargo plane play space and imitation air-traffic control tower alongside other attractions including parachute swings and a barbecue area.

Division 4 Councillor Russell Milligan said the city’s parks were an asset to the community.

“This iconic Ipswich park with its aviation-themed playground is a family favourite,” Cr Milligan said.

“These upgrades are important as council continues to deliver community facilities suitable to our growing community.”

Division 4 Councillor Kate Kunzelmann said the upgrades were a welcome addition to the park.

“These upgrades will benefit local families now and for many years to come,” Cr Kunzelmann said.

“There is no shortage of fun to be had at Lobley Park and I encourage local families to visit the park to enjoy the new and improved facilities.”
