The Mooloolah Recreation Reserve Master Plan 2013-2028 was adopted at council's Ordinary Meeting on 22 August 2013.


The purpose of the Mooloolah Recreation Reserve Master Plan is to provide a long term vision for the site (2013-2028). The Plan identifies what the site should look like and how it should function into the future.

Key recommendations

Key recommendations of the Master Plan are:

  • improve the entry to the site by increasing access and signage
  • improve drainage
  • improve pedestrian access with walking trails
  • provide picnic shelters, including one large shelter for group gatherings
  • upgrade the toilet block, including pathways and lighting
  • provide formal car parking
  • install bollards on Mooloolah Recreation Reserve to control vehicle access on open grassed areas
  • manage and protect nearby waterways
  • improve grassed areas of pony club for safety and greater use of grounds

Community engagement

Initially council met with all groups that use the site to gather feedback on site needs. Council then sought community feedback on the draft concept proposal through:

  • displays at the Mooloolah Community Centre
  • stalls outside of IGA
  • surveys
  • online feedback forms.

Where to from here

The adoption of the Mooloolah Recreation Reserve Master Plan will provide a sound base for council and the community to lobby the state and federal governments for funding assistance to improve the site.


The Mooloolah Recreation Reserve is located on Way Street, Mooloolah. The scope of the Master Plan includes the Mooloolah Recreation Reserve and the Mooloolah Pony Club, which is directly east of the reserve.

The guiding principles of the Master Plan are:

  • engage the community
  • keep the character of the site including cultural and historical values
  • protect and enhance the environmental values including water quality of creeks and streams
  • maximise community and recreation activities
  • encourage equal access
  • design for future use and growth.
