Residents draw to the attention of the Brisbane City Council a large number of families with young children living in Holland Park West surrounding the Balis Street Park. There is no playground for children in the Balis Street Park, however there are always children and families in the park area. The park could become a place where parents, children and neighbours could spend an increased amount quality time together. This area could be utilised to a much greater extent for family outings, and would be a great benefit to the community. Overall, having the facilities will help to promote social interactions for the community and increase the utilisation of the park.

Your petitioners therefore request funding be allocated to build a children’s playground for local families.
