Brisbane would soon be home to a fourth inner-city parkland following Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner’s announcement to create the city’s biggest public park in about 50 years.
Under plans released by the Brisbane City Council, the 26-hectare council owned Victoria Park Golf Course, which is currently used as a ‘pay and play course’ would be transformed into large scale public parkland.
Using inspiration from the Singapore gardens the new park will be looking to bring in more tourists to Brisbane and really put Brisbane on the map. The council also took into account what the people of Brisbane had to say and tried to incorporate all of these options and recommendations into the park.
In recent years the golf course has seen a decline in patronage and a reduction in revenue.
This revamp of the park will put some new flair into Brisbane and will become an attraction to come see.
The Victoria park will be double the size of the golf course and creating a green link to city fringe, including Kelvin Grove, Herston, Bowen Hills and the Brisbane showgrounds.
The rockpools will be the centre of the attraction which will complement the whole park with all the other activities available around the park.
During 2019-20, $1 million has been allocated to kickstart the community consultation and design for the Victoria Park Vision that will protect greenspace for future generations and help make Brisbane an even better place to live and relax.
This will also increase property prices so if you are looking to invest into Brisbane then this is the time for you to do it and then make some awesome returns on your properties.
The council will be involving the community every step of the way so that everyone knows what’s going on and the time schedule of when it will be finished.
