About this space

Emu Park

Part of the Bowden urban renewal project, Emu Park resembles a Spanish ‘plaza’ (or ‘plaça’), a central meeting place within a town.  With multiple entry points the park invites us in to sit under the multiple shaded seating options, bring a ball or a book, and enjoy the sculpture art and namesake of the park.

Within the thriving urban neighbourhood, a stone’s throw from the city, this playful park actively complements its surroundings.

Emu Park features;

 ·         3x3 basketball court,

·         barbecue facilities

·         shaded dining seating,

·         playground

·         urban art/ sculpture & creative signage

Bowden is designed as a walkable residential & cultural zone, with the surrounding area offering art spaces and galleries, community gardens and the Plant 4 market to explore.
