Harmony Gardens Reopens - Dutton Park

Published July 16th 2012
After a short period of closure, this gorgeous park and playground has reopened with new all ability equipment. This park may be on the small side but it has a lot to offer a family looking for some outdoor fun.

It is the perfect spot for a picnic with picnic tables (2 of them sheltered), toilet facilities and a stunning outlook.
Perfect picnic spot

A butterfly themed playground designed by Brisbane City Council in collaboration with the local community is on hand to amuse the kids with swings, tunnels and climbing apparatus amongst the equipment. Local bushland has been rehabilitated to attract and support native butterflies.

A unique and beautiful feature of this park is the Harmony Gardens Sound Sculpture, a Brisbane City Council Community Arts Project. Designed and created by artists who worked in collaboration with blind and visually impaired groups from the Yeronga College of Technical and Further Education this attractive structure gives people the opportunity to make music - just find a stick and chime away.

A gym station is on hand for the athletes, and a gorgeous bench for those who prefer to sit and soak up the tranquility and scenery.

A path leads from the park through greenery and bushland all the way down to the river, and to a larger carpark if you can't get one in the 10 car parking space at the top (just off Gladstone Rd). There is also a smaller carpark just 100 metres down the road from the top carpark - from here you can access the park, the path and a number of picnic tables and barbecues which offer a striking outlook over the bushland.

Entrance to the carpark is Gladstone Road (corner of TJ Doyle Memorial Park Drive) and the other carparks are down TJ Doyle Memorial Park Drive. The Green Bridge is close by if you fancy a walk, and next door is a dog friendly off leash park for your canine companions.
