Roma Street Parklands

 

At the center of Brisbane, Queensland is the biggest subtropical garden in any city center in the world: the breathtakingly beautiful Roma Street Parkland.

The park is easily accessible as it is close to the Roma Street Station and the Brisbane Transit Center.

There are a number of pedestrian walkways linking the park to various points including the Roma Street Station, Albert Street and Albert Park in Wickham Terrace. A car park is also provided for visitors, and it has road access from the Wickham Terrace-Gregory Terrace-College Road intersection.

The park holds several recreational areas and themed gardens where visitors can lose themselves in

the beauty and tranquility of nature. A series of pathways and boardwalks along gushing waterways are interspersed around the park. Apart from being a recreational spot, the park also serves as an exhibit space for a collection of masterpieces by local artists.

Development for the current Parklands began in 2000. It opened to the public a year later in 2001. Today, Roma Street Parkland holds a vast range of Australian subtropical flora and fauna. The park’s diverse array of seasonal horticulture and its eye-catching collection of lizards, birds and fish keep the landscape colorful and vibrant all year round.
