I am pleased to advise that works are currently underway to improve accessibility and amenity at the Toohey Forest Picnic Area.

I'm pleased to advise the new playground construction is scheduled to commence Monday 12 March.

Council is trialling the flying of drones in designated parks due to their increasing popularity. Commencing in December 2017, the trial will run up to six months.

Belong is the new brand and trading name for Acacia Ridge Community Support Inc. (ARCSI), first established in 1989 as a not-for-profit community-based organisation that provides services and support to the communities of Acacia Ridge and nearby suburbs.

The centre of the catchment area on Brisbane’s Southside ranges from Moorooka southwards to Larapinta, and from Inala eastwards to Eight Mile Plains.

I am pleased to announce that both the Moorooka State School and St Pius X Catholic Primary School, Salisbury were successful with their applications for Council’s Active School Travel Program for 2018.

It's on again! Brisbane City Council's libraries are getting into the Christmas spirit by waiving outstanding library fees during December.

All you have to do is present your overdue library book at a library in exchange for a donation of canned food.

Fines waived include overdue fines, processing and hold fees.  If you have already returned your books, but have incurred fees, you can also have these fees waived in exchange for a can of food.

This year Council's library amnesty will donate all food to Foodbank Queensland, an organisaiton that distributes food to charities and community organisations who assist those in need.

Please note:  perishable food items cannot be accepted and lost library items are not covered by the amnesty.

You may not be aware but there is a little piece of Italy right in the middle of Moorooka. Giardini Lane!

It’s the previously unnamed lane that joins Wall Street to Goodwin Terrace. 

This lane is now the major access point for unit owners in the recently completed two-storey development along its northern side, but also serves as a convenient access point from Mayfield Road, Wall Street to Goodwin Terrace.

It has been difficult to establish the exact derivation of the name but it has been attributed to the Italian word ‘Giardini’ meaning ‘gardens’ in English.
