People need a home with green spaces nearby!
One of the reasons properties are in demand in this area is the great parks!
A park popular with the kids is the Kidspace Playground near-by at Chermside. This park provides a great experience for locals and is always a hive of activity with so much to do!
Rainbow Lorikeet Park
Rainbow Lorikeet Park in Croker Street, Aspley Qld is a Brisbane City Council park with a picnic area and shelter and a barbecue. This pretty park includes a playground and a pathway for walking, which is also shared with cyclists and others on small wheels!
Marchant Park is a Heritage Location in Brisbane and is located on Gympie Road. People love to go there for the off-leash dog park, picnic and bar-b-q areas, which provide a venue for family activities and gatherings. This park is enormous. There are plenty of cricket fields, fitness gear for all ages, paths and bike ways, wildlife to enjoy and ample space to make the most of the outdoor way of life in Queensland.
The Aspley Hornets Club deserves a mention as it holds the mantle as Club Qld’s best large football (Aussie Rules) club – although it is very much in rugby league territory! Established in 1964, the Club is non-profit and provides a welcoming spot for a drink, dinner, entertainment or – weekend footy.
Shopping and Market Options
Shopping needs are more than catered for within the suburb and also the surrounds. The Aspley Hypermarket with almost 60 stores is quite the institution. Originally called just ‘Pick n’ Pay’ it was built in 1984. Today, its presence exudes warm nostalgia…
Westfield Chermside Shopping Centre
Provided for more than adequately locally with mid-tier department stores, major supermarkets, cafes and restaurants, Aspley residents also take pleasure in having one of the top 10 largest shopping centres close-by and literally down the road at Chermside. Mid-night shopping at Christmas time? The Westfield Chermside Shopping Centre (Chermy) has you covered. There is literally not much worth getting that you can’t get at Chermy!
