Mowbray Park vision - East Brisbane

Brisbane City Council is giving residents and visitors more to see and do in a clean and green Brisbane by working with the community to develop a shared vision for Mowbray Park, East Brisbane.

Council released and consulted on a draft concept plan for Mowbray Park based on feedback, stories, and input from the community. We're protecting and improving greenspace to make it easier for you to enjoy our city's great lifestyle. The Mowbray Park vision is part of Council's commitment to enhancing and maintaining more than 2160 parks across the city.

Backbone Youth Arts has been offered a recently upgraded, fit-for-purpose performing arts facility in close proximity to their current facility.

Council is currently in discussions with management from Backbone Youth Arts about their facility needs and what support they require to relocate to another council facility. Council remains committed to supporting youth arts and supporting Backbone Youth Arts to relocate to a Council facility suited to their needs.

About the project

Council is growing your Brisbane lifestyle by creating a shared vision for Mowbray Park, East Brisbane. The project will engage with residents and park users to reflect the unique identity of the park and identify potential park improvements in a draft concept plan to be delivered in early 2021.

Mowbray Park was originally purchased by Council in 1903. The park is heritage listed with a full citation in the Queensland State Heritage Register.

Mowbray Park is a District General Recreation Park and includes 3.2 hectares of tree-lined paths and lawns on a site that slopes to the Brisbane River from Lytton Road. The site has significant vegetation including well-established eucalypts, kauri pines, hoop pines and fig trees. The park also contains three leased facilities and the Mowbray Park ferry terminal.
