Featuring a raised, open grass surface stage, the park is 0.42 hectares and has a capacity to up to hold 7,200 people. There are multiple access points to power and water throughout and most of the town's sporting clubs can trace their origins here. The Park is bounded by Florence, Grafton, Minnie and Sheridan streets and in recent times has been booked for spectacular events and performances.  In 2016 the Munro Martin Park entertainment area was formally built as part of the Cairns Entertainment Precinct.  Munro Martin Park is open daily from 6:00am until 8:30pm.

The needle like statue/monument on this site was built by Fred La Cava.  He was a builder/house removalist.

The Sculpture that was unveiled as part of the 2016 amphitheater construction, entitled "Embrace" is part of a body of works by Woopen Creek-based artist Braham Stevens.

History behind the name

Janet Taylor Munro and Margaret Martin donated monetary funds to various associations, public bodies and individuals in Cairns. They donated significantly to the cost of infrastructure in the park.
