Laurel Bank Park features more 'planned' gardens - so bountiful amounts of flowers, topiary, scents, etc. There are BBQ's and Kids play area. GREAT park - but again, this is Toowoomba, what else would you expect?

If you're looking for a gated playground and lots to look at, this is your place. Also lots of shades/undercover picnic tables.

Went through The Carnival of Flowers time, very nice park with a sented garden. Nice open spaces for children to play and to have a picnic. Very well maintained throughout the year.

Even the grandkids enjoyed the gardens in Laurel Bank Park. Well kept lawns and gardens and a good place to take a restful break either for lunch or just a stroll through the gardens.

Massive park with plenty to do, see and smell. Pack a lunch and some bikes and enjoy one of the many tables to sit and relax while the kids play in the playground near by. Will visit again.
