Once known for its massive concrete drain, Hanlon Park is now one of Brisbane’s best parks with Norman Creek flowing through the park once again, thanks to the recently completed Stage 3 of the Hanlon Park rejuvenation project.

The Hanlon Park rejuvenation project aims to transform Hanlon Park into an attractive and versatile public space to support the growing Stones Corner Precinct. 

The major transformation has included a new nature-themed playground, flood resilient landscaping (which has held up incredibly well this year) and an underpass providing a safe connection under busy Logan Road for cyclists and pedestrians.

Logan Road underpass, which is now open, will allow continuous travel along the Norman Creek Bikeway without the need to cross a road from Tarragindi to Woolloongabba.

The nature-themed playground is close to the Stones Corner Community Kindergarten which provides natural play opportunities for children aged 0-12 years, including sliding and climbing equipment, sand play and swings, as well as shelter and seating areas for the community.

Aside from removing the concrete drain and returning Norman Creek to a natural waterway through the park, a new toilet block will also be constructed.

The toilet block will be located on the Junction Street side of Hanlon Park, between Myrtle and Oxford Streets, opposite the nature-themed play area located on the Lincoln Street side of the park.

Construction of the toilet block at Hanlon Park commenced in early March 2022 and is anticipated to be completed by mid-2022, weather and site conditions permitting. Council warned that ome areas will be temporarily fenced off for safety reasons whilst construction works take place.

Meanwhile, Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner said a public celebration of the major transformation will be held in the coming months.
