Samford futures – the Samford Parklands – vision

“Rarely does an opportunity arise for a community to have access to a unique parcel of land where recreation, cultural and
environmental education can be creatively housed together.”

The 700 acre former CSIRO Tropical Pasture Research Station was a contributor to Samford’s social, economic and landscape values for at least 40 years until the Federal Government directed it to be sold around the year 2000. Its existence over that time was accepted by the local community and governing councils as an unchanging anchor in the landscape. The character of the property has had a profound influence on the nature of Samford village by assisting to keep it compact and distinct. It has also provided the pleasant northern entry to the Village that brings the historical rural nature of the Valley right to the doorstep of the village.
