    Location of Nabiac Town Creek revival project

    Whilst the majority of the Nabiac Town Creek revival project will be on private land (with the permission of land owners), the triangular section between Clarkson and Nabiac Street was built up and levelled to create an open space that can be enjoyed by the community and visitors, complete with picnic tables and public waste bins.

    The project also included the installation of two shade sails at Memorial Park, which is located opposite the triangular section.
