A lovely park in the middle of the city. If you are in the area at the many trekking/outdoor shops - a great place to test out your new gear. While not a large park it has a couple of nice statues and is a great green space to relax on your adventures.

What a beautiful memorial to the Bard. The statue of Burns & the Friezes around the Memorial due justice to the great man.
The park area is quiet & a place for reflection among the many established trees.
Another statue is currently being restore. There is no information as to who it honours. The staff at the Information Centre In Brisbane Mall were unable to find out.
Glad I found Centenary Place.

Most people don't know that this spot was to be the site of the largest Catholic cathedral in the southern hemisphere. All that remains is a sandstone retaining wall. Read all about it on Brisbane history websites (Holy Name Cathedral). The park is pleasant and has remains of a World War Two air raid shelter for further interest.

Is nothing than a simple small park, I think there are like millions around the world similar to this one, and the two statues in the Middle it maybe to remind one of the early Governors of Queensland.
A visit of this site is up to 10 minutes, a few pictures and nothing more.

what a big disappointment ... not enough shade or trees - those plastic shades really need a clean (although they were sympathetically designed to blend in with the local church) - the park has terrible pedestrian access....

Centenary Place is a great little park in amongst a few major intersections. The peaceful pathways through this park are lovely and there is a nice relaxing atmosphere. Some nice statues form centrepiece's in the wide clear paths. Worth a look and a nice place to stop for a rest if you are walking between Brisbane centre and Fortitude Valley.
