Relax, play, eat
Webb Park East Toowoomba Dudley St
Verdant Webb Park in East Toowoomba.

Want to get away from the madding crowd this Easter in Toowoomba? For many years, Webb Park has delighted visitors. With its verdant grounds and peaceful atmosphere, it's no wonder that families needing time-out find it so attractive.

Webb Park grounds
The park boasts extensive play areas, a steep slippery-slide, picnicking under cover and barbecue facilities.

Reposing upon the eastern escarpment, the park overlooks a unique, panoramic aspect of the Lockyer Valley. It also boasts an extensive play area, a steep slippery-slide, picnicking undercover and barbecue facilities.

Bird-song and mature trees invite the visitor to a spot of exercise along the path (no wheelchair access). You might even just spot a Kookaburra or two.

Webb Park walking tracks
A quick stroll before our picnic lunch, anyone?

Webb Park honours poet George Essex Evans (1863-1909) with a memorial. Evans was a resident of the old Toll Bar Rd below the park, after moving to Australia from England. He is known for his poem Ode for Commonwealth Day. You can read more of his poetry on the monument.

If you're in town for the Streets & Lanes Festival, why not have lunch in Webb Park? Relax, play and eat with the family. Parking in Dudley St.
