Queens Park In Toowoomba Information
Queens Park is a picturesque park, just a short walk from Toowoomba's CBD. The park's uses are diverse and facilities make it a great meeting place or a pleasant stop.
The north-eastern part of the park boasts an immaculately tended floral garden. While it's meticulously tended all year round, displays are particularly impressive during Spring and September especially.
The south-eastern and north-western corners provide large expanses of grass for sports, with the addition of a special swing for disabled children's enjoyment. The south section of the park features children's play equipment. Throughout the park are sealed walking tracks and a bicycle track.
The park is also a focus for many community activities. The grassed area near the corner of Hume and Margaret Streets makes an ideal venue for events, including the Carnival of Flowers parade and side-show alley in September and Easterfest at Easter.
The Park, which covers 26.3 hectares, was planned and developed by Walter Hill, a Government Botanist and superintendent of the Brisbane Botanic Gardens. The many trees which were imported from Europe, Asia, and other parts of the world, today stand as grand old trees lining shaded avenues.
