Inner city green space in busy milton
Brisbane's inner suburb Milton s a mixture of light industry, warehouses, commercial offices, retail and single and multiple occupancy residences.
With the growing number of high rise apartment buildings popping up in Milton and the already established restaurant and small business quarter, it was a pleasant surprise to find the Milton Urban Common Park to bring a touch of green to the area.
Milton Urban Common Park opened in mid-2019. It provides a comfortable and quiet public space to exercise, relax and play with green shady spots to have lunch and a grassy lawned area for picnics and recreational activities.
The park features: green open spaces. new pathway access between Railway Terrace and Manning Street. subtropical landscaping, including large feature trees and lush gardens. seating walls and a sheltered area with bench seating and tables. toilet facilities and a drinking fountain.
The kids haven't been forgotten either with a fun swing and seating for parents and carers to watch and listen to their play. It's also a nice inner city green spot with soft grass for the pups in the neighbourhood.
The streetscape features mature poinsianna trees towering above which bring a striking red bloom when flowering and the ground cover has bold bromeliads to view from street level.
The park is situated on the sreet back from the Savior Faire shopping and cafe district. So once you've had your coffee, breakfast or a sneaky drink, don't forget to look out for and stop at Milton Urban Common Park .
Milton is located 2 kms from the CBD. While you are there, why not take in the sights of the Milton Heritage Trail with lots of interesting local history sprinkled including the XXXX Brewery, a replica Eiffel Tower and the stately Milton House.
