Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens expansion

The new, four-hectare expansion of the Brisbane Botanic Gardens at Mt Coot-tha is now open and is an outstanding community benefit of the construction of Legacy Way. The expansion increases the Gardens' social amenity, connectivity and open space and has been built on the area previously occupied by Legacy Way's western worksite, on the corner of Mt Coot-tha Road. The new space is the largest upgrade to the Gardens since they opened in 1970.

Features of the new area include:

  • interactive kitchen garden
  • nature-themed playground
  • picnic facilities
  • amphitheatre
  • forest walk
  • 18 megalitre lagoon.
