Ashgrove – The nature lovers’ suburb

Nov 11th 2014 at 2:34 AM

Along the Waterworks Road, just 4 kilometers from Brisbane CBD lays the Ashgrove suburb. With its early 20th century Queensland-style houses, parks and walking paths, this may very well be the perfect suburb to settle down and raise a family. There are also a number of heritage-listed sites like: the Granite House (the first homestead in the area) in St. Johns Woods, the 1870s Glen Lyon house and many others.

Mingling with the locals

Visiting Ashgrove means walking into a big family reunion. Everybody has a past here and the place has a general good vibe. The people are welcoming and friendly and downright neighborly to even the most out of place visitor. Its quiet and „leafy” nature makes it a very serene place to be, and these are just a few of the pros of being an Ashgrovian.

Pros and cons

Like many local residents will tell you, Ashgrove has its pluses, but it also has its down sides. For instance, a big plus you will notice immediately when you visit Ashgrove is the abundance of green…, well almost everything. From parks to backyards and hill sides, Ashgrove surrounds you with a pleasant sense that although it is an inner-city suburb, it has lots and lots of recreational opportunities. Also, wildlife is a big thing in Ashgrove. Residents boast about their almost symbiotic relationship with it. But don’t think that Ashgrove is only a good place to send the children of to grandma to. Another big plus that every person living in Ashgrove will tell you about is the great schools in the area. This means that this suburb is also suited for the needs of a young family looking to start on their own path in life. But, unfortunately, there are a few cons, such as the lack of nightlife and a quite busy main-road. But all these are a small price to pay for the pleasure of living in one of Brisbane’s’ most family friendly suburb.
