As Macgregor and the surrounding areas continue to grow, it is important to ensure that new parks are created to meet the recreational needs of residents.

About the project

To support residential growth in Macgregor, and in response to findings in the Mount Gravatt Corridor Neighbourhood Plan, a new park has been planned in Bedser Street.

The new park will provide the growing residential community with a much-needed green space with shady spots to have lunch and enjoy the outdoors, as well as areas for recreational and community activities.

Bedser Street Park will contribute towards Council's commitment to creating new lifestyle and leisure opportunities by enhancing the park network to respond to a growing and changing Brisbane. The creation of the local recreation park is just one of the many ways Council is growing your Brisbane lifestyle.
