The second stage of the Hanlon Park development in Stones Corner is done and locals may now enjoy the public park. Work on Stage 3 has also commenced with a target opening sometime in early 2022.

Cr Fiona Cunningham led the opening of Hanlon Park Stage 2 on 4 Oct 2021 along with members of the N4C Norman Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee, the families and kids of Stones Corner Kindergarten, and some residents. 

Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner graced the opening as well and said that this green space is “quickly becoming Brisbane’s best kept secret.”

The Hanlon Park revitalisation between Cornwall Street and O’Keefe Street in Stones Corner was included in the Norman Creek 2012-2031 Master Plan. The project, which started in mid-2020, was  designed to transform a 100-year-old concrete drain into “a thriving community greenspace with a natural waterway, adventure playground, shared pathways and public art.”

“Our revitalisation of this community greenspace is quickly taking shape, with a new nature themed playground and, for the first time in about 100 years, Norman Creek is flowing through the park once again,” Mr Schrinner said. 

Meanwhile, Stage 3 of Hanlon Park will run along O’Keefe Street, which will include more vegetation, shaded areas, pathways, and additional facilities. It will set the groundwork for the Brisbane Metro’s construction beginning 2022, which will include an underpass over Gladys Street.
