  1. Please note, you have circled the wrong location for Buxton Park. The one circled on your map is actually Greenstone Park – another great park in Yarrabilba. The newly opened Buxton Park is to the north of Yarrabilba – at the other end of Buxton Avenue! Buxton Park is much larger than Greenstone Park.
