CUSP acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands and waters on which we work. We recognise the deep connection of First Peoples to Country and value their contribution to caring for managing our lands, waters and seas. We pay our respects to Elders past and present and extend that respect to all First Nations peoples.

Waterline Park, Queens Wharf Brisbane

Waterline Park is the new active recreation zone located under the Riverside Expressway opposite 1 William Street. Once an unsafe and impenetrable barrier between the river and the CBD, it is now a series of welcoming recreational ‘landscape rooms’, with lush sub-tropical planting and exercise opportunities.

A passionate team of CUSP designers led by Stephen Pate reimagined this space that was previously used for parking into a dynamic recreational space that celebrates the riverside location and improves connectivity for pedestrians and cyclists from the riveredge to the City grid.

Framed by terraces and broad steps positioned for sitting and spectating, this space is able to support a wide variety of recreational opportunities, including outdoor gym equipment and table tennis and structures suitable for plyometric training.
