Council has allocated funding for stage one of new park projects at Lions Park in Gladstone, the Many Peaks Railway Dam, Frank and Francie Hart Park at South End, and the Flat Rock Picnic Grounds at Baffle Creek.

It also has developed an initial plan for upgrade projects are each park, and would like to hear what residents think.

"The initials plans for Many Peaks Railway Dam include a new car park and formalised lawn area, with future considerations for a new picnic area and timber dam wall viewing deck," he said.

Stage one of the proposed upgrade at South End features static fitness stations and safety fencing.
