The inner-city riverfront park is located below the Story Bridge, with city and river views and is located close to the Holman Street ferry terminal. The park features a playground, taps, barbecues, power, wheelchair access, car park and toilets (near the car park).

Park bookings

Bookings apply only to the park booking site you choose in the park and to the use of any facilities in that booking site such as power (if available). You cannot book barbecues, shelters (other than rotundas marked) or playgrounds for your specific use, though your group is free to share these facilities with other park visitors. Power points may have different phases (i.e. operate on different voltages), so it is advisable to check your electronic equipment's compatibility before your event.

In some parks, as well as the booking site/s, there may be some alternative bookable areas of the park. Submit an application and you will be contacted regarding the suitability of the park for the event, availability and fees.
