Welcome to New Farm Park Online
Did you know that New Farm Park attracts more than18,000 visitors each week, coming from all parts of Brisbane and beyond. 80% of that number do not live in the immediate local area. They come to the Park to picnic, to play, to eat, to dance, to ponder, to gaze and wonder at the true magnificence of the Park. First timers blend in beautifully with NFP regulars. Eighteen hectares of superbly planned horticultural delights, flanked by a myriad of community and commercial precincts totally at peace with the environment in which they find themselves.
The Park has many stakeholders, principally the city of Brisbane and the many talented and committed people within the Council who have overseen the development and protection of the Park in good times and bad. New Farm Park is one of the most popular and much loved recreational facilities in all of Brisbane.
Perfect weekend weather, wind gusts notwithstanding, have seen many well organized activities in the Park, none more so than the group pictued above. These ladies made their visit to the Park look like simple routine; spectacular as well. There are many more pics. of their day in the WEEKEND GALLERY. Toni Heath and her perfectly presented cupcakes took centre stage.
These weeks past have seen a beautiful white yacht moored just off the Park's eastern walkway. Our Newsletter of next week provides some background to its presence, having recenty completed a 20,000 kilometre journey across the Pacific.
Some highlights of the trip can be seen on the following video link. Great material.
This City of Brisbane, continues to do things very well. Recent school holidays saw huge crowds celebrating the re-opening of our beautiful City Hall. The very expensive but exceptional restoration programme has been some years in the making, commencing in 2010. Those in the guided tours were in unambiguous awe of what they were seeing. The unique Museum of Brisbane was a favourite amongst many, together with the Clock Tower outcomes, but the overriding sentiment I felt, was the acknowledgement of the beauty, the charm, the finesse and the quality of this restoration Project. You should all go !
