About the project

The Bradbury Park improvement project aims to provide the community with more opportunities to enjoy Brisbane's beautiful climate and connect with family and friends in places that make our city great.

Bradbury Park currently provides a hub of active opportunities and is well used by the community for netball, lawn bowls, cricket practice, Girl Guides activities and dog exercise.

Council plans to upgrade a central section of the park to deliver a vibrant, multi-use space that will cater to a broad spectrum of the community.

Community feedback on the draft concept plan was wholly supportive of the proposed park upgrades. In response to this feedback, a basketball half-court will also be included as part of the project.

The final concept plan shows the proposed elements that will be investigated for delivery as part of the next phase of the project. These elements include:

  • a large play space nestled amongst existing trees to provide challenging play for older children
  • new picnic shelters and seating with electric barbecues
  • a new toilet block
  • connecting pathways
  • a car park upgrade to cater for the increasing patronage to Bradbury Park
  • a new basketball half-court.

In addition to these proposed upgrades, Council will begin construction in early 2020 to deliver a nature play area for younger children, new fitness equipment and a looped scooter track in other sections of the park. More information will be provided to the community prior to the commencement of works.
