The Brisbane City Council recently announced the mangrove walk at Gardens Point will be removed instead of repaired after being damaged by storms earlier this year.

The mangrove walk was a part of the botanic gardens, and let pedestrians walk through the mangroves and learn about the ecosystem. The boardwalk was damaged in the Australia Day weekend storms and subsequently deemed unsafe for use.

At an estimated $1.8 million to replace, the council has has decided to remove the 380 metre boardwalk within the next few months.
