Victoria Park's Grand New Parklands
Brisbane’s biggest new park in 50 years, Victoria Park has started taking shape, with the transformation of the ex-golf course into a massive 45 hectare green public parkland, now open for picnics with a view, walks and space for kids to kick a ball or run around.
The exciting 64 ha redevelopment, which started with the closure of the gold course, will see the iconic parklands become one of Brisbane's major tourist attractions for all ages.
Major drawcards will be Lake Barrambin which will feature boardwalks and be open to canoeists and kayakers, along with cycle routes, an adventurous high ropes course, canopy walk and a nature and water play gully.
There'll also be a state-of-the-art amphitheatre for outdoor performances and events, wetlands and lagoons, and a community garden or orchard and plenty of picturesque picnic spots.
Good to know - The current Victoria Park function centre, Bistro, driving range and putt-putt course will remain due to their popularity.
Need to know - Victoria Park will be redeveloped in stages over the next few years, with each new section opened to the public upon completion.
