The project, initiated by Logan City Council, resulted from a vision for a vibrant, green corridor bringing people and nature together, inspiring healthy living and creativity.

The general design principle for the project provides lightweight feature forms that have in direct reference to the nature of the site. The design includes some components that feature the steel flowing like water across the concrete modules and folded origami paper shapes perched on posts. The objects are intentionally installed at varying levels to depict the different flood levels experienced overtime throughout the Slacks Creek catchment.

Street + Garden was invited, through a tender process, to collaborate with the community to showcase local artwork, celebrate the area’s history, engage with schools and industry alike to provide a space that is personalised by the residents of Slacks Creek. This relationship is integral to the ever-changing face of the project ensuring a public space that creates unique and engaging landmarks throughout the entire Slacks Creek Corridor.
