Cascade Gardens is one of the Gold Coast´s favourite family picnic and barbecue spots. There are several options for your get together, with many barbecue and undercover picnic shelters.
The riverside location gives the park a relaxed feel - Cascade Gardens is a peaceful sanctuary set back from the Gold Coast Highway. The huge playground will keep the kids entertained for hours! There is even a Liberty Swing, designed for children in wheelchairs to experience the fun of a swing.
Cascade Gardens has a lovely rotunda, which is one of our most popular wedding and ceremony venues. The green leafy surrounds of the Gardens are also the perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs.
Cascade Gardens also features serene rainforest walks, traces of aboriginal culture and an enclosed sanctuary for water birds. Many picnic areas overlook the beautiful Nerang River. There is also a state of the art amenity block.
A unique feature to Cascade Gardens is the Kokoda Memorial Walk. The Kokoda Memorial has been created to help visitors appreciate the courage and determination of the men who fought on the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea during World War II.
The Gardens are open 6am to 6pm.
