  • Beautifully designed and well maintained gardens, paths, ponds, water features, as well as various walkways through different themed gardens, make this place something special. It is quiet, with plenty of shaded spots and benches to sit and take in the serenity and views. You won't get cyclists here, it is not designed for them, making it a very attractive place to wander through. You might see a wedding if you go on a weekend, in any of the many gorgeous spots available for them. There is also a fantastic children's garden and play area.
  • Such an amazing park. It has gardens, lushious grass, barbecues and a lake with a giant fountain. Such a great spot to have a picnic or to just relax. Most of all - it's right in the city! I absolutely love this place
  • We came here for the holiday Enchanted Gardens, and wow, was I blown away. I expected a small nicely lit up area, but it felt like the whole place was lit up! Such an amazing experience. If you're in Brisbane during the holiday season, I would definitely check this out. Come on a weekday to avoid the crowds.
  • Roma St Parklands is a beautiful place to check out and relax as a couple or chill with a picnic with a few friends. Went here with my partner and explored the gardens and walked around and really enjoyed it. You have little waterfalls to check out, really nice water features, awesome gardens with really nice flowers and seating areas as well as plenty of playground areas for kids. Highly recommended parking usually isn’t too bad either unless you’re trying to check it out during busy times.
  • A great place to chill out with friends and family after a tiring weekend. My cousins (5yo) go play in the local playground all the time. They regularly host interesting events. It is well kept and maintained. Good location right next to a transport hub.
