Laurel Bank Park

Just to the west of the city centre on Herries Street are the magnificent grounds of Laurel Bank Park. Kids love the giant “caterpillar” and “train” shapes which have been topiary clipped into the hedges. Keep a nose out for the garden the Downs Association for the Blind helped create. It’s bursting with strongly scented blooms you can enjoy with your eyes closed! Laurel Bank Park’s stately grounds also feature a croquet lawn, graceful archways, an elevated viewing platform and a great childrens’ play area.

Don’t miss the exciting events and tours happening in Laurel Bank Park.

What’s on during Carnival?

Toowoomba’s parks aren’t just for flowers, bring your picnic blanket and relax to music floating from the beautiful parks.  Or why not try something different with some of the active options throughout Carnival.

Please click here for a full line-up of the free entertainment at Laurel Bank Park from 21 to 30 September.

Time for tea?

While you’re visiting beautiful Laurel Bank Park, drop into the Croquet Club for a traditional Devonshire tea or cool drink between 9am and 4pm daily from Saturday 22 to Sunday 30 September.

There’s also mobile food vans in the park during the 10 days so you’re covered from a mid-morning snack, to a pick me up coffee to lunch on the go.
