Vic Lucas Park – The Fun
Bulimba’s Vic Lucas Park is located right on the bend of the Brisbane River, offering a beautiful vantage point for some park fun. The playground features a pirate theme, with a ship-shaped structure comprised of climbing activities and a slide. There are also swings (including an infant swing) and other modern play equipment pieces at this park. For older Brisbane Kids, there’s a basketball half-court. Several paths criss-cross the park, making it perfect for scooter or bike riding. The riverside location does require you to keep a close eye on roaming young Brisbane Kids; however the view is well worth it. Vic Lucas Park has a picnic shelter with two tables, a couple of unsheltered tables and a barbeque. There is also bench seating adjacent to the playground.
With the expansive river views at Vic Lucas Park, many games can be had spotting the boats sail past. The pirate themed playground and ship makes a great vantage point for spotting the enemy approaching, whilst the flat grassy spaces are perfect for a run.
Vic Lucas Park has modern wheelchair accessible toilet facilities. There are several concrete pathways throughout the park that are flat and could all be easily navigated with a pram or wheelchair. The playground is unfenced and there is no fencing along the river, so vigilance with exploring Brisbane Kids is advised. The playground is unsheltered, though large eucalypts shade the area through much of the day.
