"The quiet end of Ashgrove"

HISTORY: Lansbury Parade was once infact a creek. It flowed into Ithaca Creek (still there) at the end of Lansbury Parade. Lansbury Parade's creek has been put into pipes underground and can no longer been seen. Parts of Lansbury Parade where once within the boundary of 'Woodland'. Woodland is an historically listed home on Woodlands Street, which runs parrallel to Lansbury.

PROPERTIES: Large homes adorn Lansbury Parade and the streets which come off it. A large percentage of the streets in this particular pocket of Ashgrove actually go no where. There are no shops, schools, doctors or sports grounds to attract traffic and as a result is wide and quiet residential street. If you want to see REALLY wide check out Grant Street! Its ridiculous. I've been in Lansbury for nearly three years and have met people all along its route. The homes are mostly old Queenslanders, some renovated, others on the way to being renovated. A couple of new homes, some post war and a few brick homes too. A mix of tin and tile roofs complement the homes they protect. There are no apartments or units on Lansbury Parade.

TRAFFIC: Bott Street at the western end can be busy in mornings and afternoons as rat runners use it to avoid the Ashgrove & Waterworks Road intersection. Whilst there are traffic calming measures in place, be careful with kids and pets when crossing as the non-locals who use it have little regard for life. But Findlay, Grant, Anderson, Romani & Warmington Streets are generally very quiet, with only residents and those visiting using the roads.

RECREATION: At the eastern end is "The Park". It has a running/bike path along it and if you follow it you can travel for miles in either direction. Its popular early morning with people exercising. The park has a small playground for younger kids, a bbq area with shelter and a heap of open space - great for kicking balls and flying kites. The creek can flood during severe storms so be aware. NOTE: Many maps show 'Lark Avenue' coming off the eastern end of Lansbury along the creek. Lark Avenue does not exist - Its much better as a park.

LOCATION: You can access Ashgrove's main retail area in 5-10 minutes on foot and public transport is available on both Ashgrove Avenue and Waterworks Road that goes straight to the CBD. Its a combination of things that makes Lansbury a great place to live. We have no traffic, beautiful homes, a large park and shops within walking distance. If you are lucky enough to snare a home on Lansbury or within the triangle of Ashgrove Avenue, Waterworks Road and Ithaca Creek, you will be forever grateful that you are in the quiet, city side pocket of Brisbane's best suburb - Ashgrove.
