Glen Innes Highlands isn’t only famous for its World Heritage listed National Parks, the town and villages are also noted for their beautifully maintained parklands and gardens.
Just west of the Glen Innes CBD, a series of parks run through the town with the landscaped Rocky Ponds Creek running through the centre of the parklands.
Large trees provide ample shade, wheelchair and pram friendly paths meander, quaint bridges, picnic and BBQ areas abound, children’s play areas, exercise equipment, memorials, rotundas and lovely manicured lawns complete the picture of the parklands that start in the south and run several blocks toward the north.
Glen Innes Highlands has an abundance of parks used for all kinds of community, recreational and sporting activities. They go hand-in-hand with our lifestyle promoting health, fitness and participation in our vibrant community.
Sporting & Recreational:
Centennial Parklands is another very popular park and is home to the Australian Standing Stones.
It also has scenic walking and mountain bike tracks, The Stone cottage café and Martins Lookout where one can enjoy a view of the entire town.
It’s a great place to have a family picnic among the stones, or enjoy freshly made coffee from the cafe and the friendly bird life.
What does the future look like for the Centennial Parklands?
An ambitious, yet exciting plan to utilse the area to bring together Ngoorabul and Celtic Heritage, provide a system of pathways linked to the shared pathways throughout town and provide a facility that can attract the conference market, build the Australian Celtic Festival and improve services to the community and tourists.
Glen Innes Highlands has a very keen community of gardeners with the Glen Innes and District Garden Club having formed over 60 years ago.
The Garden Club often holds open days and visits to various gardens in the Highlands, some of which have featured in national magazines and garden television shows.
In any season, the gardens in the highlands are beautiful to see.
There are also a number of cool climate nurseries and garden supply stores in the area.
