Roma Street Parkland events

Roma Street Parkland covers 16 hectares in the heart of Brisbane and is open to the public 24 hours a day (apart from the Spectacle Garden which is closed from dusk to dawn). The parkland offers visitors with spectacular horticultural display of subtropical plants, a children’s garden and playground and a full events program. Pathways and toilets are wheelchair-friendly in the lower parkland and disabled parking is available. Free deck chairs (as part of the Chairs2Share program) are also available.
