Decided to brave the park with the 3 + 4 yr old on my own. First visit, weekday afternoon. Had no idea on parking situation, but couldn't find any free parking close by. Paid about $10 for 2 hrs but it was right along the park. 2 hrs was a good amount of time when we didn't stop for snacks or a picnic. Kids loved walking around and seeing the different sights and of course stopping by a play area for about 40 mins was great to burn their excess energy. Saw a train driving around with passengers. Not too much info readily available about the train posted around but got the down low from a staff member at 'The Hub'. We were sadly a bit too late to catch a ride this time. But apparently it's free. Kids loved the winding paths, the water falls, the open grass areas, the colourful flowers, the huge trees, etc. would definitely like to do it again with the hubby involved. Maybe make a day of it and take a picnic. It's one of those places that you'll see a group of students all gathering around a BBQ or a musician sitting in the middle of the grass area strumming a guitar and then a photographer taking advantage of the beautiful blooms. Train station is nearby which might be cheaper than parking all day??

Had a beautiful Sunday exploring the flowers, trees and bits of wildlife running around. The variety was great as were the displays. Some statues around but could use more I think.

Almost bordering onto the CBD by metres. Great place to wander and relax. Different times of the year you will get different plants flowering, but there is always the garden beds specially done all year round. Great photo ops.

It's amazing what can be done with a little effort, this use to be the worst eyesore in Brisbane, and now the whole roma street area has been transformed, lovely parklands and gardens with lots of shaded areas to have a bbq

Roma St Parklands are well worth a visit. Beautifully set out, winding pathways through wooded areas and glorious gardens. Places to sit and picnic, plenty of room for children to play. I especially loved the garden of scents and tastes. A cafe for coffee. Just behind Roma St station.
