Luke Swindale has dedicated considerable energy to transforming Hargreaves Road Park. His efforts have breathed new life into the area. Clearing invasive weeds, collecting rubbish, and planting native species, he has also constructed a picturesque walkway, providing a delightful space for all visitors to enjoy.



Remarkable Transformation Efforts

Supported by the Brisbane City Council and the Bayside Creeks Catchment Group, a series of programs have been organised with the primary goal of fostering awareness and engagement in this accessible natural resource. Notably, these initiatives have captivated the curiosity of young minds — encouraging a sense of environmental responsibility from an early age.


June 4 is Community Planting Day at Hargreaves Road Park and everyone is invited for a morning of environmental rejuvenation.

Starting at 9:00 a.m., attendees can help protect and enhance the habitat and biodiversity of the Glider area.

Local Resources

In addition, Wild Rangers will entertain children with an engaging wildlife show at 10:30 a.m. A complimentary sausage sizzle will be provided for all attendees, ensuring that everyone is fueled for a day of meaningful contribution.

Family Fun and Environmental Stewardship

“We’d love to see you on Sunday,” Cr Lisa Atwood announced on her Facebook page. “Just bring a hat and water bottle and we’ll provide the rest (the planting holes will even be pre-dug).”
