  • Roma Street station behind the parkland! Is a decent size, but I liked the flower. Was healed. Spend with parents and children's playground. It is also very close from the train station. Finally getting to lizards. But I won't go.

  • Beautiful park in the heart of the city. To break away from the noise of the noise and the bustle of the city. There are some tropical forest, a Lake, part lawn and eyes a part with some flower beds of multiple colors. The entire garden is perfectly maintained for the enjoyment of visitors. It is a public garden and so free. Especially do not miss to visit.

  • Spectacle garden is my favourite but love it all. Lake could do with an improved filtration system as its a bit stinky. I recommend installation of solar pumps and windmills to pump water up on top of the cliff to make more waterfalls and increase aeration.
  • A stroll through the gardens at Roma Street Parkland is a really wonderful way to relax. During week days I always find a park and its usually quiet and peaceful. Weekends are less quiet and it might be better to park and ride or walk from RS Station. The water features are always lovely and the changing garden beds for seasons are a highlight. Spacious and serene.
  • Peaceful, quiet area that you can roam around for a couple of hours. Encounters with birds, bees and lizards are guaranteed. Specific zones for children, families and entertaining. A small "train" will take you around the park for a gold coin donation.
  • Grass is soft yet firm. Nice texture, appropriate for sits. If grass isn't your thing then a picnic blanket could improve your experience.
  • A peaceful retreat hidden in a busting city. You will find something here for everyone to enjoy from serene gardens to a little train ride around the park lands to kids play ground or a beautiful cafe to sit and unwind. Allow a couple of hours here to really take it all in.
