Thousands of plants, including natives and some of the world's most endangered, have been used to create lush subtropical gardens in an unused railway yard. The effect is stunning. There are self-guided walks for each themed area of the gardens, including the "art walk" to discover the interesting public art on display. The park has barbecues, picnic areas, a playground, and cafe. From King George Square, it is about a 500m (1,640-ft.) walk along Albert Street.
