When we first moved to Brisbane, we were blown away by the amazing parks; each one better than the last. Some of our favourite parks are located beside the Brisbane River.

South Bank Parklands is one of the most popular parks in Brisbane, with both locals and tourists. With a beach, barbecues, and plenty of green space right on the river, it's no wonder. And there are now two playgrounds for children with the recent addition of Picnic Island Playground.

Captain Burke Park, located on a bend in the river underneath the Story Bridge, can't be beat for its stunning views: the bridge, the river, and the CBD. You can walk or cycle to Burke Park along the Kangaroo Point riverside path.

Colmslie Beach Reserve, also known as the Octopus Garden, is a magical park found near the Gateway Bridge in Morningside. A giant octopus head and large orange fish are just a few of the fantastic finds in this park.

Another park we have only recently discovered is Rocks Riverside Park in Seventeen Mile Rocks. Situated on an old cement quarry, this park has a great playground, wonderful water play area, and lovely lush lawns throughout it.

Other riverside parks that have been reviewed by Weekend Notes writers include New Farm Park(New Farm), Mowbray Park(East Brisbane), Orleigh Park(West End), and Brisbane Corso Reserve(Yeronga).

If one of your favourite parks is positioned next to the Brisbane River, please leave a comment and share it with the rest of our readers.
