With the upgrade at Hercules Street Park officially commencing in January 2019, over 16,000 plants will soon be planted throughout the park, also known as Hamilton Recreation Reserve. The project is part of the $10-million revitalisation of the park at Northshore, Hamilton.

The Hercules Street Park upgrade project will increase the park’s size as well as deliver improvements: fig garden, picnic areas, fitness and recreation areas, village garden, kiosk and bike hub, junior playground, water play area, and a dog park.

“The 16,000 plants will give life to the park’s many facilities such as the barbecue and picnic areas, children’s playground, dog off-leash area and walking paths – which will be fully lit at night,” Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick said.

“The design of the park also includes a system where the water used as part of the children’s playground water play facility will be captured and held in a holding tank, then used for irrigation purposes.

“The water play facility will be a hugely popular feature of this park, especially during a hot Queensland summer.

“This is a smart and responsible use of our resources, reusing water to keep the plants and grass healthy, and the park will be greener and greater because of this,” Mr Dick said.

In December 2018, Economic Development Queensland appointed JMac Constructions, landscaping arm of BMD Group, as the official contractor of the Hercules Street Park upgrade project.

“The mass planting is going to add so much greenery to this area and change the face of the entry roads to Northshore,” JMac Constructions General Manager Jason Lindsay said.
