Hanlon Park is a large, open green space in the heart of Stones Corner. It is being revitalised as a priority precinct of the Norman Creek 2012-2031 Master Plan. The said Master Plan guides key initiatives to revitalise one of the city’s most urbanised catchments.

The Hanlon Park Project involves transforming the park into an attractive and versatile public space to support the growing Stones Corner Precinct – creating a vibrant urban oasis with more to see and do.

The Hanlon Park project will deliver a space that:

  • revitalises Norman Creek, which runs through the park
  • enhances the environment with more trees and natural spaces
  • increases recreational and social opportunities for residents and visitors
  • enhances connectivity and accessibility within the park and local area
  • boosts local economic vibrancy with a new place to relax and enjoy.
