Village Heart

Village Heart

Located in the heart of the Gold Coast Health and Knowledge Precinct, this newly created park boasts over seven hectares of lush green space.

Get together with friends and family and enjoy the complementary barbecue facilities, relax with your favourite book in the shade or catch up on studying under the sheltered areas. You can also take in the scenery with a leisurely jog around the one-kilometre track.

A highlight of the parklands is the 'disc', a sculptural element and water feature which recalls the rock formations and waterfalls of Natural Bridge at Springbrook National Park.

Wrapping around the Village Heart is the “arbour”, a twisting, golden double helix which continues conceptually throughout the entire site: it is the DNA strand which ties the whole precinct together.

This beautiful park acquired by the City of Gold Coast is a legacy of the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games and will be enjoyed for generations to come.


Get off at the Griffith University Light Rail station, walk two minutes and you’re at your destination.


Whether it's a community fun day, a corporate function or a birthday party, Village Heart has the perfect location to suit your needs.
