GREENBANKS NEW EVENT SPACE
A $5.1 million parkland is now open to the public as part of stage one of our masterplanned community - Everleigh in Greenbank
The new green space is made up of 1.5 hectares of recreation parkland - equal to the size of three football fields - including an events space and junior playground.
An additional 8,000sqm of linear park provides a strong pedestrian and cycle link along a ‘green spine’ between the new recreation parkland and the Greenbank Shopping Centre.
It’s the first stage of more than 120 hectares - over 25 per cent of the total site - which will be dedicated to public open space.
The delivery of the new parkland is a small part of the forecast $130 million Mirvac will contribute to community infrastructure networks, including public open space, road and transport infrastructure, and water and sewer infrastructure.
Mirvac Queensland Residential General Manager, Warwick Bible, says the new parkland is for both residents of Everleigh and the broader Greenbank community to enjoy.
"Everleigh will have a strong focus on open space and community - and this first stage of parkland is designed to embrace both," he says.
"The event space is a fantastic amenity for those who call Everleigh home and a central meeting point for the wider area, and already has a calendar filled with free Wellness in the Park classes, social gatherings, and larger-scale community events.
"In designing the parkland for Everleigh, and the timeline for its delivery, we carefully considered what was available in the Greenbank area already and how we could complement that.
"I have no doubt the new event space, children's playground and path and bikeways will become a place the whole community can enjoy."
Matt Franzmann, managing director of Form Landscape Architects, which has designed the new park, says the first stage creates a unique identity for the new Everleigh community.
“The ‘green spine’ linear park creates a strong visual link from the entry through to the heart of the community, with the first stage primarily presenting the green common, which is specifically designed as a place for community gatherings and events," he says.
"We’ve also incorporated a playground for toddlers and young children, with play opportunities like swings and slides, sculptural elements, climbing nets and forts, as well as barbeque facilities and picnic shelters, all nestled alongside a rocky creek bed.
“As the project continues to roll-out we will be building on these recreational opportunities, with the next stage of parkland to include a playground designed specifically for older children to complement the amenity delivered in this first phase. Ultimately, the green spaces will all link together with over 13 kilometres of walking trails and bike tracks."
Everleigh has been met with high demand, with more than half of stage one already sold and the first homesites now completed.
