About Newtown Park & Queensland State Rose Garden

Newtown Park & Queensland State Rose Garden

Newtown Park is one of Toowoomba's premier parks covering an area of 30 acres (12ha).

It's a must-see location with three main feature areas including the award-winning Queensland State Rose Garden, a children's playground and barbecue area, and sports ovals with croquet lawns and cricket pitches. A number of pathways link across the park alongside a collection of murals, plaques and rest areas dotted throughout for the enjoyment of park users.

Bounded by Holberton, Taylor, Tor and Pottinger Streets, the park is popular for revelling in the delights of the gardens, enjoying family activities, and participating in sport or fitness pursuits.
