About the project

Hanlon Park /Bur'uda was a large, open green space in the heart of Stones Corner that has been revitalised by removing the concrete drain and returning Norman Creek to a natural waterway through the park.

The park has been transformed into an attractive and versatile public space that supports the growing Stones Corner Precinct – creating a vibrant urban oasis with more to see and do.

A new nature-themed play area located off Lincoln Street, close to the Stones Corner Community Kindergarten provides natural play opportunities for children aged 0-12 years, including sliding and climbing equipment, sand play and swings, as well as shelter and seating areas for the community.

Additionally, Council is pleased to announce the inclusion of a public toilet block within Hanlon Park. The site of the toilet block is located on the Junction Street side of Hanlon Park / Bur'uda, between Myrtle and Oxford Streets, opposite the nature-themed play area.

Project benefits

The Stones Corner Precinct - Hanlon Park / Bur'uda Rejuvenation project:

  • revitalises Norman Creek, which runs through the park
  • enhances the environment with more trees and natural spaces
  • increases recreational and social opportunities for residents and visitors
  • enhances connectivity and accessibility within the park and local area
  • boosts local economic vibrancy with a new place to relax and enjoy.

The concept plan was developed through community consultation in 2018, including a co-design workshop, online survey and extensive technical investigations.

Other project works

Logan Road underpass

Council has constructed an underpass at Logan Road in Stones Corner as part of this project – similar to the access under Cornwall, Juliette and Ridge streets. It provides alternative access under Logan Road to link with Gladys Street. The underpass allows continuous travel along the Norman Creek Bikeway without the need to cross a road from Tarragindi to Woolloongabba.

Due to the tidal nature of Norman Creek in Stones Corner, it is not feasible to make this an all-weather access.

The Hanlon Park / Bur'uda underpass project is proudly supported by the Queensland Government's Cycle Network Local Government Grants Program.

Brisbane Metro

A small section of Hanlon Park / Bur'uda will be used as a construction zone to facilitate nearby works at the Buranda Busway Station, as shown on the concept plan. Once the Metro work is completed, the area will be returned to public space.
