TOOWOOMBA'S parks are already putting on a show with just over a week until this year's Carnival of Flowers gets under way.

The Toowoomba Region Facebook page has given residents and visitors coming to this year's celebrations a different view of the impressive floral display.

A video has been posted online showing a birds-eye view of the Botanic Gardens in Queens Park.
