Nice place for lazy afternoon. Everything you need is well in reach. Superb for families with small children. We rented bikes and drove next to the river.

Really good place to spend a sunny day walking and having a bite to eat. Able to hire bikes and scooters. Swimming available for the kids and museum and art gallery available.

As an early riser, and staying at a near by Hotel, I walked the parklands strip each morning for a week. It was absolutely amazingly beautiful. The gardens, swimming areas, Temple, Epicurious, statues and views of the City, Everything so open and well maintained.
The Cultural Centre frames this area unobtrusively,
Offering entertainment to everyone at every level.
Owing to recent flooding, the ferries were not in service.

Visited the Southbank Parklands today. I’m visited with my support worker and dog- Cavalier. The water play areas were spectacular and very popular with families of young children. The beach area was immaculate and inviting (to foreigners and Southerners- bit too cold for Queemslanders this time of year. lol). The vegetable gardens were wonderful and the staff friendly and informative when questioned about the various plants. The area (and idea) for child Yoga was terrific. The paths clean and easy to traverse in my wheelchair.

My only complaint is about the seating area around the food court - area near Subway, - not under Parklands control (I asked) . The seats appeared to have been simply collected from curbside rubbish pickup and placed in that spot - horrible to look at. Brought down the appearance of the entire eating area. Disgusting.

Will definitely visit the Parklands again with friends and family…but will make other arrangements for our lunch

Great place to stroll through or transit through to Kangaroo Point or Town.
Hit badly by the floods and covered with mud, in areas fenced off. Watched over the days as the hard work of the work force, cleaned up and made good.
Pool is pool is out of action and is undergoing upgrades and changes to improve experience.
Can not wait to visit and see the new works in coming future.
