We are upgrading Cathro Park to provide an important link between the Railway Parklands Precinct and Queens Park. In January 2018, we approved a concept master plan for the upgrade of Cathro Park on the corner of Ruthven Street and Chalk Drive in the north-east edge of Toowoomba’s CBD.
The first stage of the upgrade covers the area from Ruthven Street to Neil Street. Key features include a shared pedestrian/cycle connection with path lighting, new public amenities, and accessible and integrated utilities services for temporary vendors.
The existing Hoop pine trees will be retained with additional trees and groundcover to be planted.
Bike racks, bins, drinking fountains and seating will be installed throughout the park along with new wayfinding and information signs.
The Cathro Park Railway Parklands Linkage Project is funded through the Queensland Government’s Building Our Regions program and Council.
Construction began on 30 April 2018. Parts of the park will be fenced at various stages to allow safe construction.
