South Bank and Roma Street Parklands transition

Brisbane City Council and the Queensland Government are committed to providing world class recreation facilities for residents and visitors to Brisbane. As part of this commitment, Council was pleased to assume the management and operation of South Bank and Roma Street Parklands from 1 July 2013.

Council established an entity, City Parklands Transition Services Pty Ltd, to manage the staff responsible for operational services for both parklands as well as the marketing activities for Roma Street Parkland. Brisbane Marketing manages all marketing activities for South Bank Parklands. Both City Parklands Transition Services Pty Ltd and Brisbane Marketing are wholly owned by Council.

Council’s dedicated teams will work on-site to ensure both parklands continue to contribute to Council’s vision for a vibrant, liveable city.
