VISION FOR ART SPACE
DAVADI Street is set to get a whole lot more beautiful with a dedicated team of volunteers working to revive the “unkempt” land.
ArtWorks Granite Belt has taken over the old railway station facility, as well as the vacant land fronting Davadi Street.
The group wants to beautify the space and make it more inviting for locals and tourists.
“Although the main focus of ArtWorks Granite Belt is to provide a venue for arts related activities accessible to the whole community, in particular making access possible for people with disabilities, a sub-committee was formed last year to plan a garden in what had been a fairly ugly and unkempt vacant block,” Carol Parkinson from the sub-committee said.
“Such a development would be of clear benefit for the town.”
Well-known landscape designer Caroline Robinson gave her time to help prepare a plan that has been approved by Queensland Rail, owners of the land.
Some generous donors have aided in raising enough funds to do initial preparation. A day will be held on April 12 to do some more work with volunteers being sought. Turn up at 10am to lend a hand.
VISION: Dean Ford, Carol Parkinson and Anita Knight look over their grand plans for what to do with vacant Queensland Rail land.
