Botanic Gardens Riverwalk

Cycling on Bunya Walk, Brisbane Botanic Gardens

Brisbane City Council is pleased to release the preliminary design for the Botanic Gardens Riverwalk project (formerly known as the Alice Street/Edward Street (Botanic Gardens) Riverwalk project).

Council is planning to upgrade a section of Riverwalk, from the City Reach Boardwalk at the corner of Edward Street and Alice Street to the Bunya Walk in the City Botanic Gardens, with the construction of a shared path bridge.

The aim of the project is to provide a safer, accessible and more direct pedestrian and cyclist connection, and will include the following features:

  • a two-way shared path, approximately six metres wide, connecting City Reach Boardwalk to Bunya Walk, City Botanic Gardens
  • viewing platform and proposed future River Access Hub connection
  • retaining the existing footpath access along the river’s edge
  • associated footpath connection works
  • provision of lighting, wayfinding signage and a permanent counter
  • associated landscaping works.

Community engagement is an important element of this project and Council is now collating feedback received on the preliminary design. More information about the project will be provided to the community as it becomes available.
