Overlooking the river and Brisbane City, Riverside Green affords stunning views both day and night. The new destination features an open lawn area, an extension to the adjoining rainforest and a large pavilion offering shade with barbeques, a sunken seating area and hanging plants.
Celebrating freshwater streams and the richness of land connected to water, contemporary Aboriginal artist, Elisa Jane Carmichael, a Ngugi woman from Quandamooka Country, has created Water is Life - a water channel and sculptured forms to complement the space.
Developed for public enjoyment and entertainment, Riverside Green contributes 6816 square metres of green space to the parkland and an additional 650 square metres to the rainforest. It is the perfect meeting place for family and friends to relax and enjoy the outdoors at South Bank.
