Park Road, Milton Village Precinct Project
Brisbane City Council has completed the $540,000 streetscape improvement project at the Park Road, Milton precinct. Council worked with the local community to revitalise the precinct, delivering a more attractive, comfortable, and connected centre for locals and visitors to use and enjoy.
This is part of the Village Precinct Projects program (VPP) and Council’s commitment to create a city of vibrant neighbourhoods.
Council consulted and involved the local community in the planning of the Park Road, Milton precinct improvements. The community feedback supported a refresh of the existing street furniture along Park Road and the creation of a streetscape plaza at the corner of Gordon Street and Park Road, to visually and physically open-up the park to the street frontage.

To celebrate the project's completion, Council hosted a community celebration at Adam Smiddy Park and plaza. The local community, Mater Smiling for Smiddy community, businesses and visitors to the precinct enjoyed live music and singing, face painting and giant lawn games in the park. The community were encouraged to explore the precinct and enjoy special offers provided by the local eating, boutique retail and entertainment venues in this lively neighbourhood precinct.
