Picturesque Queens Park is just a short walk from Toowoomba's Central Business District. Much loved by locals, and beautifully tended year-round, the park a great meeting place or a pleasant stop on your journey.
The north-eastern section boasts an immaculately tended floral garden and formal botanic garden, with displays particularly impressive during summer and spring, especially in September.
The south-eastern and north-western corners provide large grassy expanses for sports, with the addition of a special swing for disabled children's enjoyment.
An off-leash dog area lies adjacent to Godsall Street. The southern section of the park features children's play equipment. Throughout the park are sealed walking tracks and a bicycle track.
The park is a focus for many community activities, including the Carnival of Flowers events such as The Gala Dinner, The Flower, Food and Wine Festival and Side-Show Alley in September; and the Languages and Cultures Festival each August.
A 26.3 hectare green space, Queens Park was planned and developed by Walter Hill, a government botanist and superintendent of the Brisbane Botanic Gardens. Many trees imported from Europe, Asia, and other parts of the world, today stand as grand old trees lining shaded avenues.
