Officially opened on 6 April, 2001 by the then Premier of Queensland, the Hon Peter Beattie MP and the Hon Robert Schwarten MP Minister for Public Works and Information and Communication Technology, Roma Street Parkland is a popular gathering place for the people of Brisbane, and has established its self as a highlight destination for interstate and overseas visitors to Brisbane.
Part of the greater Brisbane plan, the Parkland was the first in a series of projects transforming the western edge of Brisbane's Central Business District and is a vital link in the city's circle of green, encompassing the City Botanic Gardens and South Bank Parklands.
The Queensland Government's Department of Public Works manages and operates the Parkland.
Its vision is to establish the Parkland as 'a unique public open space which is a preferred destination for the leisure and recreation of all people. It will feature significant horticultural displays, events and activities.'
