Greenspace in Wynnum

There is some discussion regarding a proposal to close part of Edith Street (between Bay Terrace and Akonna Tce) to create a greenspace, as there is no other "green" area near the Wynnum CBD.

However, there is another proposal being considered - that the school grounds of Wynnum Central School be the green space for the Wynnum CBD. As part of the Schools of Tomorrow plan by the State Education Department, it is thought that Wynnum Central School may be closed due to lack of students, and the possibility that other nearby schools will be upgraded to provide better education facilities for primary school students.

As well as using the school grounds to provide a greenspace, there is a proposal that the school buildings - some of which are heritage listed, to provide the venue for an Arts College/Precinct.

An art gallery? Studio for musicians to record? Drama and art classes?

What do you think?
