The last of Brisbane's popular South Bank has re-opened after the floods.

THE last of South Bank's lagoon and pools has re-opened this weekend, following the damaging January floods.

The opening of Streets Beach, South Bank's largest pool by surface area and volume, marks the final piece in the rebuilding process of the parklands.

The beach required extensive repairs to replace the compromised lighting and filtration system.

It also sustained medium structural damage, cracks in its concrete shell and a broken liner.

More than 3000 cubic metres of sand had to be replaced before the beach could be fully restored.
