To help create the final concept plan, the Council is seeking community feedback on the proposed Mt Gravatt Outlook Reserve enhancement project until 22 September 2019.
Options to upgrade the Mt Gravatt Outlook Reserve’s entry, amenities, including at Gertrude Petty Place, and walking tracks are now being studied. The community is invited to provide input to help the Council understand which elements of the reserve the residents would like to see enhanced or included.
In his Budget Speech in June 2019, Lord Mayor Schrinner mentioned that he will commit $1.7 million to maintain lookouts, of which $443,000 is allocated to upgrade Mount Gravatt Outlook Reserve.
