Located just six kilometres west of Ballarat’s central business district on the Avenue of Honour, Lucas covers 220 hectares and is the largest community to be master planned and constructed in Ballarat’s history.
Lucas is open and inviting, well connected and provides the facilities and infrastructure to live life locally with shopping, schools, leisure and community centres set amongst large tracts of open green parkland.
One of the most attractive benefts of regional living is having everything you need at your doorstep.
Perhaps you will decide on a pleasant walk through parkland to your favourite café, or a moonlit stroll home after a wonderful meal at your favourite restaurant. Leave your car at home all weekend and enjoy having shops, services and entertainment in your local community.
The main street at Lucas is a 7-day a week cosmopolitan shopping strip. Reminiscent of Melbourne’s famous shopping streets, featuring tree-lined walkways, alfresco cafes and restaurants, full line Woolworths supermarket, Wilsons Fruit and Vegetables and specialty retail shops.
The Lucas Town Centre and multi-million dollar Community Centre provide places for people to gather, socialise and form a community in a friendly open air environment. The Community Centre will house meeting rooms, childcare options, play areas, consulting rooms and activity spaces.
Planned with your lifestyle in mind, Lucas is designed around a central green heart that provides walking and cycling trails linking you to the surrounding community. There will be neighbourhood parks within a fve minute walk of every home in Lucas.
The centre piece of Lucas’ open space will be the large central park. Featuring a senior size multi-sports oval - large enough to include one AFL oval or two soccer pitches, seating terraces and club rooms, plus room for indoor sports facilities.
Surrounding the sports facilities will be walking and cycling tracks, a creek, wetlands and an adventure playground large enough to rival any in the district.
By providing schools, shopping, business opportunities and parks within Lucas there is little reason to jump in the car, reducing the footprint we leave on the environment.
Alternatively you can catch public transport, with planned access points every 400m - reducing your dependency on the car, promoting healthier living. Public spaces will feature carefully selected drought tolerant landscaping, ideal for providing shade in summer and sun in winter.
Lucas has been designed to make life easy for you. Kids will be able to walk or ride to school without having to cross major roads.
A network of walking paths and cycling tracks connecting open parkland will make it easy and safe to move around. Lucas’ planned Education Precinct and Learning Hub is just one of the benefits of being part of a master planned community.
Planned within easy reach of all residents and located on the central linear open space reserve will be a choice of both public and private schools featuring shared sporting facilities.
The Education Precinct and Learning Hub currently houses Siena Catholic Primary School (P-6) and in time will also include a state government school (P-9).
The precinct is aimed at providing plenty of space for outdoor activities, designated bus and car-park zones for safe pick-up and drop-off, direct access to major sporting facilities at the Lucas Central Park, and a secure, controlled environment achieved through the placement of school administration buildings at the entrance to the school grounds.
