New Playground Supports Healthy Living In Wyndham Vale
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, children aged 5-17 spend nearly one and a half times more time on screen-based activities than they spend exercising. Luckily Melbourne has some pretty awesome parks and playgrounds for getting kids outside, off devices and immersed in nature.
One such place is Savana’s community park in Wyndham Vale, which officially opened on Saturday 15 June with a family-friendly celebration, treating locals and visitors to free face painting, a petting zoo, lawn games and appearances by Nick Jr.’s PAW Patrol.
AVID Property Group’s (AVID) Savana community in Wyndham Vale is a residential project built to meet the demand for the booming population of both Melbourne and nearby Dandenong CBD. The community has been designed with a focus on supporting health and wellbeing among local residents.
AVID Property Group Victorian General Manager Peter Vlitas said park facilities like this delivered more than just beautiful spaces for the community; they are important facilities in aiding with health and wellbeing for residents and visitors alike.
“This park has a great range of amenities including an amphitheatre, greenspace, jungle gym and play fort that truly encourage active play for kids and offer adults the opportunity to exercise as well,” Mr Vlitas said.
The park is more than a hectare in size – creating the perfect space for the growing Savana and Wyndham Vale community. “Whether you’re a yoga fanatic, taking your dog for a walk or you just want to have a game of soccer on the lawn with your friends, you’ll be able to come down and enjoy Savana’s community park.
“With adults and kids spending an increasing number of hours in front of screens, offering families and individuals an exciting place to actively explore is a really important step for building not just a happy community, but a healthy community as well.”
