Rockhampton will gain a new central large-scale modern park for community recreation with the revitalisation of Kershaw Gardens.
The project will include an iconic entry statement, additional carparking, new playgrounds, water play and landscaping features, improving liveability in the area and creating business opportunities, such as tourism. It will complement the riverbank and CBD revitalisation on the opposite side of the river and improve an area significantly damaged by Tropical Cyclone Marcia in 2015.
