Gordon Park Real Estate
Gordon Park is located 6km from Brisbane’s CBD. Shaped like a horseshoe, it is bordered by Kedron Brook on the southern and eastern sides.
Although it is Brisbane’s smallest suburb it does not lack when looking for your next home and offers a lifestyle very few suburbs can boast of. Residents refer to it as a “hidden gem” and many families choose Gordon Park for the outdoor activities available such as walking and biking tracks. It also has the largest off-leash area in Brisbane for your dogs to run and enjoy the outdoors.
Gordon Park History
Gordon Park was created when local housing land was divided up in 1890 and named after the exploits of General Sir Charles Gordon in the Sudan. The two main thoroughfares were Gordon and Khartoum Streets. Khartoum Street was the location of local shops and public facilities, and in 1926 a Baptist church was established here. Although it was subdivided in the 19th century it is known as an interwar suburb. Gordon Park lost its suburb status during the 1980’s and 1990’s (it became a locality) but regained it back in the late 1990’s.
