At present, the Cubbon Park is under the control of the Department of Horticulture.

"I have a love-hate relationship with Cubbon Park. On the one hand, it's beautiful. It's got a lot of potential. On the other, it's filthy. Plastic bags everywhere, trash all over the place, garbage heaped up and uncollected. Another peeve I have is the constant burning of the debris, including said trash. It still is a decent park, but has the potential for so much more."

"I am confident this was a lovely park many years ago but now it is overgrown, poorly maintained and unappealing. Reference pictures posted today. Garden beds are full of weeds, paths are collapsing and dangerous, grass is long, seating is broken and cold stone. I doubt the original designer planted this many trees so close together or meant his plantings to be untended. The canopy has grown to such an extent that the park floor is mud, a few weeds, overgrown grass and rubbish. Such a disappointment and I wonder what experience positive reviewers have, if they describe this as 4 or 5 star and glowing statements."
