Works for Milton Urban Common Commences

Construction of Milton Urban Common, a new urban common park for a variety of uses, is now underway. 

After announcing the final concept design to the community in mid-2018, Brisbane City Council announced that the works for the new park already started in May 2019.

Situated at the corner of Manning Street and Railway Terrace in Milton, the park will feature green shady spots, seating walls, sheltered tables and ample open space for recreational activities.

Based on community feedback and site investigations, features that have been incorporated into the concept plan include:

  • a swing to replace the table tennis table
  • an additional shade structure
  • public art
  • a drinking fountain with a dog water bowl
  • additional large tree plantings
  • increased garden space, reducing the amount of pavement

In early 2018, BCC collected community feedback on the concept plan for the first stage of works via an online survey and information kiosks.

The project aims to deliver a space that increases accessible green space in the area, promotes a sense of community, and encourages recreational activity in Brisbane’s wonderful subtropical climate.

Milton Urban Common is part of Council’s commitment to keeping Brisbane clean and green, making the city livable and sustainable for future generations.

Depending on weather conditions, works are due for completion in September 2019. For latest updates on the project, visit the Brisbane City Council’s website.
