Providence parklands.

Green spaces are a feature of life in Providence. Our first major sportsground, Ironbark Park is already open and home to Ripley Valley Football Club seniors, women’s and junior teams, and there are local community parks, walking, cycling and jogging paths, a dog park and even a fitness & exercise park waiting for you to discover them.

When completed, Providence will have over 200Ha of parklands and green spaces, larger than the Brisbane Botanic Gardens, City Botanic Gardens and Southbank Gardens combined.

Space to grow and play.

Large and small, formal and free flowing, designed for sports or landscaped for leisure, Providence’s parks, sportsgrounds and green spaces will bring the community together to appreciate their natural surroundings, celebrate events and special moments, and support their local sporting heroes and heroines.

Planting the seeds.

As the town grows nature and discovery trails will be added and the historic Bundamba Creek will be renewed and rehabilitated. Plus, in addition to our current sportsground, Ironbark Park, a new $3 million sports and recreation precinct is planned that will become home to Ripley Valley’s NRL, Aussie Rules, cricket and hockey teams. 

Places for our furry friends too

Canine lovers we are.  And we celebrated our furry friends in November 2019 with the opening of our first dog park.  The off-leash areas cover about 2,500 square metres and feature generous open spaces and a number of new dog-friendly features.

The off-leash dog areas are separated into two different spaces; one for small dogs and one for larger dogs and include canine agility equipment and sheltered areas.
