About the project
Brisbane City Council is creating more to see and do in a clean and green Brisbane with more opportunities to enjoy Brisbane's beautiful climate and connect with family and friends in the places that make our city great.
Wally Tate Park is an established district park situated in the south Brisbane suburbs of Runcorn, Kuraby and Eight Mile Plains. The park stretches broadly from Underwood Road in the north to Beenleigh Road and the Beenleigh/Gold Coast rail line in the south. The park comprises areas zoned for district sport and recreation and district open space under Brisbane City Plan 2014.
