Milton Urban Common

Brisbane City Council is pleased to advise that construction for a new urban common park in Milton is now complete. The project construction started in May 2019 and was completed as scheduled in October 2019.

The much-loved inner-city suburb of Milton is evolving into a thriving urban hub for businesses and residents.
