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 than our parks can continue to meet the recreational needs of residents.

Council is seeking 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.

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

Have your say on this project from 25 November to 16 December 2019.

About the project

Council is pleased to release a draft concept plan for the Bradbury Park improvement project, providing 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.
