New Farm Park is a local treasure. It's without a doubt one of the best parks in Brisbane for picnics, sports, and dog walking. It's a gorgeous place to spend some quality time, either with friends or alone with a good book. There are several small cafes in the area for when you need to re-fuel. Because it’s located on a peninsula, you are able to see walk along the waterfront for several kilometers and enjoy the stunning scenery. The park is often home to local events, ranging from farmers’ markets near the Powerhouse to an annual Pride festival. If you’re interested in history, you’ll also find smaller plaques and statues around with interesting information about Brisbane history. The park is a really popular place for exercise with outdoor gyms, running-friendly pathways, and an area where people play football regularly. It’s a great place to bring your kids or a group of friends to play outdoor games.
