As the first public space of the Destination Brisbane Queens Wharf development to open, Waterline park included subtropical rain gardens for natural treatment of the local stormwater catchment before it is discharged into the Brisbane river. Extensive hardscape were designed by Bornhorst + Ward including terraces and retaining walls.
The goodwill extension included a substantial widening of the bikeway to improve safety and minimise interactions between cyclists and pedestrians. Bornhorst + Ward designed several structures on the Mangrove walk including the boathouse, shade shelters and the bird hides.
Waterline Park will feature a climbing wall and a dedicated lane for cyclists to link through the space from the city to the Bicentennial Bikeway via Alice Street, facilitating the areas use as a recreation hub.
