Tree beds are referenced by the name used by busties to identify them. Names and locations of these beds are indicated on the maps.
New signs at the reserve.
Brisbane City Council has now replaced our old and damaged sign near
the car park with this brand new sign. It’s the same design as the old one
but has our group’s name displayed, which was missing from the old one.
Mullock Heap attacked.
After many years of sitting near the Scouts tree bed, the Mulluck Heap is no more. Glen and Bob removed most of the
old vegetation on Tuesday 11th August and the rest of the bushies helped to relocate the remaining soil at the Saturday
working bee on 15th August. The remaining soil has been used to slightly extend the Scout tree bed.
BCC has also added the story sign to the Stan’s Way sign. This is the
same as the original sign which was removed during the process of
building the new car park .
Sadly, the BCC signwriters where not the only ones active in the park,
Some Graffiti artists defaced the other Stan\s way sign and also Stan’s
seat for good measure. What a shame these vandals couldn’t spend
some tine helping us with the weeding at the reserve
