RIVERWAY

Riverway is a riverfront parkland attraction located in the Condon Suburb of Townsville that opened in July 2006. It stretches along 11km of the Ross River, with areas at Pioneer Park, Loam Island, Apex Park and Ross Park at the Ross River Dam.

The areas of Riverway that have been completed are Pioneer Park and Loam Island.









Riverway is connected directly to the Thuringowa Central business district via a pathway along the foreshore. Village Boulevard is the name of the road into Pioneer Park and forms the city/park integration. From the car park it extends through the park as a pedestrian spine that follows the rivers edge and forms the heart of Pioneer Park.


The Tony Ireland Stadium is part of the second stage of Riverway and consists of an international standard AFL and cricket stadium with a capacity of more than 10,000 people.




Riverway Arts Centre is a geographical formation with a grass roof that incorporates the parkland without a decrease in the amount of grassed area. It also lowers the interior temperature by reducing the roof surface temperature.

Riverway offers a dynamic combination of cultural, sports, leisure, residential and commercial activities. With two huge swimming lagoons, the Riverway Arts Centre, Pinnacles Gallery, the Riverwalk and parklands, there truly is so much to explore.

In most of the weekend I visit riverway and enjoy by relaxing and walking around.
