Hip hip hooray! Your favourite railway yard turned lush haven is celebrating its 20th birthday in the best kind of way this spring.
Roma Street Parkland is playing host to a blooming bunch of events this September to help you spring into the season. From breezy tunes to historic deep dives, and floral extravaganzas, grab your picnic blanket and take a look at what’s on offer below!
The Sound Society
When: Sunday 5 September
There’s double the entertainment and double the fun at this spring special edition of The Sound Society, with a curated program at Roma Street Parkland. Think two live music acts, food trucks, a model boat regatta, and sweet treats or savoury bites from The Garden Room Cafe, alongside a BYO tipple of your choice.
When: Until early October
Smell the daisies and a whole lot more with the annual floral showcase at Roma Street Parkland’s Spectacle Garden. Wander through a curated display of over 16,000 annuals, which were planted months ago and timed just right so you can experience the full bloom in all its glory. You’ll also find a cake that’s literally too good to eat, layered with six rare varieties of Kalanchoe and frosting in White Alyssum florals, to celebrate the Parkland’s 20th birthday!
