An award-winning garden to remember the fallen.

Cardno now Stantec were part of the broader group of services and designers that came together to deliver a truly beautiful, inspiring and reflective garden nestled in the inner-city landscape of Milton. Located in the grounds next to Suncorp Stadium and the old Anglican Church of Australia, the garden features murals, plaques, flowers and seating. 

The garden was officially opened in October 2021 and in June 2022 won twice at the 2022 Queensland Landscape Architecture Awards.   

The garden won “The Landscape Architecture Award for Community Contribution” and “The Courier Mail People’s Choice Award”. Winning the awards means the Afghanistan Memorial Garden will be in the Australian Institute of Landscape Architects 2022 National Awards. 

For our client 42 for 42, we provided the engineering services and worked alongside many businesses to help deliver this important place. Designed for people to gather and reflect on the services and sacrifices made by others.

We encourage you to visit the Afghanistan Memorial Garden, located at 16 Hale Street, Milton, Queensland, Australia.
