Hanlon Park/ Bur'uda

Stones Corner

An inner-city concrete jungle has been transformed into a vibrant urban oasis with the rejuvenation of Hanlon Park in Stones Corner. 

Hanlon Park / Bur'uda, Stones Corner

Located between between Cornwall and O’Keefe Streets, and the Logan Road bridge and Cornwall Street bridge, Brisbane's oldest concrete drain ran down the middle of Hanlon Park for about a century.

Brisbane City Council has revitalised the 5.2 hectare park by removing the 100-year-old, 500m concrete channel and returning Norman Creek to a natural waterway that flows through the park.

Hanlon Park is now a lush, urban oasis, attracting locals and visitors alike, with shared pathways that loop around the park, 2 playgrounds, public art work, terraced seating, creek crossings, and a new amenities block.

Picnic shelters and benches are scattered throughout the green space, which now boasts an impressive 462 trees and 43, 000 shrubs. Plus, you'll find barbecues and picnic tables beside the brand new nature-themed playground where little ones can climb, swing, slide and dig in the sandpit.
