Laurel Bank Park reviews
Absolutely stunning!!! Visited during the Flower Festival and was just amazed that for sure a reasonably small space you could experience so many beautiful flowers. I felt like I was in heaven.

Laurel Bank Park was the highlight of our visit to Toowoomba for the Carnival of Flowers. It is spectacular. The displays are beautiful and the work that has gone into presenting the park as it is...

Amazing place to visit during the flower festival, grab a Devonshire tea, and soak in all the colours. Laurel Bank Park has more flower beds and sculpted bushes than the Botanic Gardens. They also carry a different variety of plants like tulips. Scones (with Jam and cream) or lamination and a tea or coffee is only $8 and a nice way to relax. Butterflies, birds and bees are also nice to see. There is a large Thomas the Tank style train made out of hedging, along with many animal shapes; perfect for photos and kids to see. Lots of space for kids to run around or for people to take a picnic blanket / enjoy the soft grass. There is also a tall platform to look down at the pansy display. Unfortunately we missed the parade, but there was enough parking in the side streets. We had a really lovely afternoon.
Easy parking off Hill Street. We are here in summer and although some of the garden beds are covered (I assume to be prepared for next spring) the rest of the park is lovely. There are mature trees offering ample shade along the edges of the park. A playground is not far from the parking area which has a set of covered picnic tables, perfect for a party. Saw some seats set up which would make for a lovely wedding scene. Loved the topiaries and the scattered statues throughout. Also I love hedges and this park clearly does too. :)
Awesome park with great playground for all ages of children. Toilets are close to the playground and the covered picnic tables with BBQ and water fountain. Large open area nearby even has metal cricket stumps for the family game of cricket after lunch. Lot of shady trees and flowers with an incredible floral display in September for the Carnival of Flowers #COF
This is a small public park in the centre of Toowoomba set in flower filled gardens that is a pivotal place for community events and family activities. There are picnic tables throughout the park as well as a permanent large marquee BBQ area, community events building, sports oval, water conservation ponds, interactive art displays and children's adventure playground with climbing castles, tunnels, walls & activity centre. Annual special events are held at the park including flower displays in the Spring Carnival. There are public amenities, water drinking fountains & on site free parking. The park is easily accessible by bus or a short walk from Grand Central Shopping Centre. A lovely place for your team meeting or lunch break all year round.
Visited during Carnival of Flowers Sept 2022. Absolutely beautiful! We visited Toowoomba during the recent drought and what a difference! The colours were so vivid and the gardens looked stunning. Perfect picnic spot as there's plenty of space. A small carpark within the park and plenty of off street parking also. Toilets are in the park also.
