The site offers picnic facilities, and the area down by the river provides particularly pleasant al fresco dining beneath shady trees.

  • Nice park by the river and all these cool night light features. It feels a bit quiet though at night so best not to go alone. Otherwise during the day it is very family friendly and a very open park but it fills up pretty fast on a weekend picnic scene
  • A beautiful place of history for Brisbane. So fantastically maintained and cared for. Great to explore historically or to enjoy a picnic/afternoon walk along the river.
