The 'Mowbray Precinct' has seen significant population increase from new development without suitable recreation space available for new and existing residents.

Council first commenced the process to acquire sites in Pinaroo Place from the NSW Land and Housing Corporation in 2013 in line with the 2011 JBA Mowbray Road Precinct, Master Planning Study.

At Council's August 2017 meeting it was announced that Council had reached a partnership with NSW Land and Housing Corporation to acquire six lots in Pinaroo Place as part of a transaction agreement that includes the transfer of Council land at Girraween Reserve. The agreement includes a commitment by Council to seek approval for rezoning of land at 552 Mowbray Road to provide a pocket park in close proximity to the existing Girraween Reserve. Read the full Council Report from 21 August for more details.

As a result of the agreement, Council will be able to provide a 6,300 m2 recreation space utilising the six lots in Pinaroo Place, the Pinaroo Place cul-de-sac and the existing park on Kullah Parade.


Council is currently consulting with the community on the new park at Pinaroo Place/Kullah Parade as well as the proposed pocket park at 552 Mowbray Road.

The community is being encouraged to provide feedback on the proposed 6,300 m2 park design which currently includes the following features:-

  1. Off-street parking
  2. Table tennis
  3. Play equipment
  4. Full size basketball court
  5. All abilities access toilet block
  6. Serpentine walking path
  7. Multi use open lawn area
  8. Meeting circle/outdoor classroom
  9. Multi use platform/stage
  10. Picnic shelter, table setting and barbeque
  11. Pump track for skateboards, scooters and bikes
  12. Multi use games area
  13. New turning facility
  14. Potential community garden

View the Master Plan and Landscape Plan for the expanded Park.

This expanded recreation area is made possible by the agreement between Council and the NSW Land and Housing Corporation. It will see the existing park on Girraween Avenue transferred to the NSW Land and Housing Corporation. As a result Council is seeking to rezone land at 552 Mowbray Road for the purpose of an additional pocket park utilising equipment from the existing Girraween Reserve along with seating and landscaping.

View the 552 Mowbray Road Landscape Plan which is being proposed for the new pocket park.

In addition to seeking feedback on the proposed park designs Council is also seeking suggestions for names for the expanded Pinaroo Park and is running a separate consultation in relation to the proposed road closure of the Pinaroo Place cul-de-sac.
