New Park at Bourke Street Zetland

Consultation has concluded

Thanks to everyone who had their say on this park. The exhibition period has now finished.

A new park will be constructed as part of the transformation of 904 Bourke Street. The site is currently an industrial estate and on completion will be a residential neighbourhood within the Mary O’Brien precinct of Green Square. The pocket park will be connected to Victoria Park via the future Green Link and will be accessible to the Green Square Town Centre via Navins Lane.

A large Moreton Bay figtree is situated on the southwest corner of the site and will be retained and incorporated into the design of the park. This tree was originally planted in the gardens of Zetland Lodge, racing stables that once occupied this site.

The new park will be a flexible open space for passive recreation, providing a central lawn for:

•Picnicking and socialising
•Ball games
•Exercise
•Garden play

Surrounding the lawn is a loop path reminiscent of the horse racing track, scaled for children to ride their tricycles and scooters. The loop defines the geometry of the lawn and separates a series of play spaces and pathways, immersed within an incredible urban garden that reimagines Zetland Lodge.
