A new open space the size of Brisbane’s Post Office Square will open in West End today.
The opening will be celebrated with ice creams (from La Macelleria Gelateria) being served for the first time in more than 40 years on a manicured lawn in front of the 1920s Peters Ice Cream factory.
Described by its designers as an “urban forest” with mature trees and grassed areas, The Common, together with two new leafy laneways, will open to the public today.

At 3300 sqm, The Common, Wilson Lane and Factory Lane match the size and scale of Post Office Square and are the first significant inner-urban open space in Brisbane since Frew Park at Milton in 2014.
