Infrastructure upgrades

  • In December 2018, Brisbane based JMac Constructions was appointed as the park contractor. You can read more about it on the news feed.
  • In early 2018 construction commenced on the Wharf Close pop-up park at Northshore. The pop-up park is located at the old Eat Street site at the end of Wharf Close and will provide local residents, dogs and the community with an outdoor space while Hercules Street Park (Hamilton Recreation Reserve) is revitalised. The pop-up park will include a dog-off-leash area, a grass oval and some children's play equipment and is open between 5.00 am - 7.00 pm.
  • Hercules Street Park (Hamilton Recreation Reserve) will undergo a $10 million (approximately) transformation and expansion. The proposed design includes a sprawling lawn, impressive fig garden, a picnic area, a dog park and water play facilities. The village green in the centre of the park is designed to be large enough for a game of cricket or football and with facilities for open air, amphitheatre style entertainment.

Roadwork activity

  • EDQ recently completed a $24 million road upgrade project which saw Harbour Road, Hercules Street, Remora Road and MacArthur Avenue upgraded to include four-lane, sub arterial roads with upgraded footpaths, cycle tracks, street lighting, two new signalised intersections, road resurfacing and boulevard planting.

  • Hercules Street Park Playground Enhancement Works

    about 2 months ago


    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

    • 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.
