Middle Park was the sixth and final suburb to be completed as part of the Centenary Project in 1976. The suburb was built on a spacious green-belt, with its name reflecting its location in the middle of the Centenary Suburbs area on the borders of Jamboree Heights, Riverhills and Westlake, as well as the McLeod Country Golf Course. The golf club is the only club in the Southern Hemisphere, which is administered, and run by women. The area was designed for peaceful living with quiet cul-de-sac streets for minimal traffic flow, and Camelot Crescent in the suburb was promoted for offering panoramic views from elevated lots.
With an average 20 minute commute from Brisbane City, Middle Park is located just 17km from the CBD. The suburb has approximately 1261 residential properties and is approximately 2 square kilometres, with 4 parks. Experiencing a 3% growth in population between 2001 and 2006, the predominant age group in Middle Park is 40-49 years. Households in the area are primarily couples with children. In 2001, 77.4% of the homes in Middle Park were owner-occupied compared to 82.2% in 2006.
