A Huge $32M Parkland Project Is Making Sydney Greener
If you're always on the lookout for greener pastures, a new community development project is promising 59 hectares of lush new grassland across two Sydney precincts. That’s the equivalent of 59 rugby fields!
Providing sprawling open spaces for families to get their nature fix and enjoy the great outdoors, locals will have the equivalent of two Royal Botanic Gardens in their own backyards. The urban oasis will include over a million trees and plants, as well as 12km of walking paths and trails, and plenty of room for picnics and playing!
Citing the project as an example of their commitment to their communities, as well as to the environment and its wildlife, Project Director, Patrick Noble, said that providing open spaces across Sydney is crucial.
“Creating spaces for our residents to get out and explore nature is not only important to the lifestyle and wellbeing of our residents but also fosters pockets of biodiversity in Greater Sydney,” he said. “We hope residents will enjoy the access to the extensive parkland and find joy in the numerous trails, paths and recreational amenities on offer.”
With two stages of construction already complete, Willowdale residents can frolic in five parks, enjoy multiple playgrounds and meander through native bushlands on scenic walking and cycle paths.
