Glindemann Creek is a major tributary of Norman Creek; its headwaters are in the bushland on the slopes of Mt Gravatt. A large part of it is a concrete channel, which interferes significantly with normal creek ecology.

Current involvement

N4C members collect rubbish in Glindemann Park on a regular basis; it is remarkable how much there is to collect!

Background of the project

N4C and community representatives participated in developing a master plan for the site some years ago.  The creek has been naturalised at the far southern end of Glindemann Park, although it is piped through the children's playground area.  Upstream of this, plantings have been carried out by Council with the support of N4C. 

Future of the project

We hope Glindemann Creek will be naturalised all the way through Glindeman Park and further on, towards the confluence with Ekibin Creek, where Norman Creek officially begins.  There is potential for the creek channel to be improved in the northern section of Glindemann Park, by widening the channel and giving the banks a gentler slope.  That would enable weed control and establishment of native riparian vegetation.

Ecological Monitoring

Glindemann Park has been visited by our Baseline Ecological Monitoring team, in June 2015.
