Victoria Park GC to close to make way for Brisbane’s biggest new park – Victoria Park Vision

About the project

Creating Brisbane’s biggest new park in 50 years means more opportunities to enjoy Brisbane’s beautiful climate and connect with family and friends in the places that make our city great.

The enhanced park will be more than double the size of the City Botanic Gardens, helping to make Brisbane an even better place to live and relax.

The existing golf course space is proposed to transition into a parkland that everyone can enjoy, while keeping the popular putt putt course, driving range and functions centre.

During 2019-20, community consultation will occur to create a Vision for Victoria Park that will protect green space for future generations and guide future enhancements. From 2021, works are expected to start to transform the golf course into public parkland.

Local designers’ visionary ideas for Victoria Park

To spark interest and big ideas for what the new parkland could look like, Council asked some of Brisbane’s leading design professionals to develop independent creative ideas for Victoria Park.

Five consultants created their own visionary idea for a world-class parkland on the site. These ideas aim to capture the imagination of residents and inspire even more big ideas before this initial phase of consultation closes on 29 September.

These ideas are not necessarily what will be built or included in the draft vision document but are intended to inspire and capture the attention and imagination of the public about different opportunities for the park in the future.
