Bradbury Park improvement project - Kedron

Brisbane City Council is creating more to see and do in a clean and green Brisbane by providing more opportunities for recreation in Bradbury Park, Kedron.

As Chermside and the surrounding areas continue to grow, it is important to ensure that our parks can continue to meet the recreational needs of residents.

Council sought community feedback on a draft concept plan to help shape the look and feel of Bradbury Park and ensure it caters for the growing needs of the community. This feedback will inform the final concept plan, which will be finalised in mid-2020.

The project is part of Council's commitment to enhance and maintain more than 2100 parks across Brisbane.

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.

The proposed upgrades 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.

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.
