• Hercules Street Park Playground Enhancement Works

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


    The upgraded Hercules Street Park opened on 20 December 2019 and has been heavily patronised by the community. To date EDQ has received a lot of positive feedback about the park and the quality of the features provided. We have also received useful suggestions from the community on additional features that could be implemented around the playground. The key items of feedback were:


    • More shade in the seating areas around the playground
    • Shade to the spiral slide to reduce the heat of the slide
    • Improvements to the operation of the long slide, particularly when it is wet

    EDQ has taken these suggestions on board and is in the process of implementing the following enhancements:

    • Provision of a shade sail over the spiral slide and swing set
    • Provision of umbrellas over seating areas to provide shade until the trees in the park grow and provide shade
    • Increasing the softfall at the end of the long slide, adding hold rails on sides of the slides and adding climbing features on the slope either side of the long slide


    These works are expected to be completed by late March 2020 (due to delays from wet weather).

    Whilst the works are being undertaken some closures of the playground and surrounding areas of the park will be required. Signage will be installed prior to the closures.

    We thank you for your patience during the construction of the park and again whilst we make these enhancements to the playground.

    It is with excitement that we announce, Hercules Street Park is now open to the public and can be enjoyed by residents and community members.

    The new park features:

    • 16,000 new plants that are specifically chosen for the Brisbane environment.
    • A playground and waterplay facility. The waterplay facility releases water and mist in a random pattern for children to enjoy and provides a cooling effect to its surrounds. The thoughtful design of the park includes a system to collect and recycle the water from the water play facility.
    • A dog off-leash park.
    • A multicourt play area and exercise area.
    • Barbeque and seating areas.
