About the project

The promenade path at New Farm Park is a very popular location for visitors, tourists, pedestrians, joggers and cyclists; and links the park with the New Farm Park ferry terminal and the Brisbane Powerhouse. Shortly, it will also provide a link with the River Hub, a pontoon facility that will provide an additional river access point for residents and visitors.

Currently, the promenade path is too narrow for its current use, and the path height is lower than highest tide and often becomes inundated and inaccessible during peak tides. As a result, the surrounding park environment has been impacted.

The project aims to revitalise and further enhance New Farm Park and will deliver a high quality interface with the Brisbane Powerhouse precinct and provide a strong sense of entry and clear wayfinding for all visitors.

Project details

The revitalisation of the New Farm Park promenade included:

  • constructing a new 4.5 metre wide concrete path
  • installing concrete seating walls and decorative pavement at Brisbane Powerhouse, river hub and ferry terminal interfaces
  • installing creative lighting and additional seating along the promenade
  • upgrading existing garden beds and landscaping works.

Other activities in New Farm Park

Construction of the New Farm Park River Hub has been completed.
