Being a tourist the site is just delightful! Everything was just beautiful! People enjoying their time playing with their kids... it's just so relaxing to be there! The facilities are well thought of... the public beach is just awesome! A perfect place to spend that afternoon after a busy day at work. Either it be dining, biking, running, swimming or even just to sit down... you'll surely find this place worth going back to.
One of my best place to be around Brisbane. It has got Pools (awesome one with a beach ), Temples, Trees, Gardens, Wheel of Brisbane and other stuffs. It lies nearby the River so, the breeze is just amazing. It also connects to Kangaroo Point cliffs and provides landscape view of the city. It is also great place to see fireworks !
