A masterplanned community at Greenbank, set to feature more than 3000 homesites, has opened an estimated $5.1 million of parkland to the public.
The park space includes 1.5 ha of recreation parkland – equal to the size of three football fields – including an events space and junior playground.
An additional 8000sq m of linear park will provide a strong pedestrian and cycle link along a ‘”green spine’’ between the new recreation parkland and the Greenbank Shopping Centre.
Everleigh will feature about 3300 homesites, along with conservation parkland, sports fields and recreation parks, and a suite of community facilities, including a primary school, neighbourhood retail centre and community health centre.
More than 60 per cent of stage one sold ahead of completion of the first homesites, anticipated to be ready for construction this year.
Roger and Jenny Peterson are among the first purchasers at Everleigh and will downsize from their large five-bedroom home in Regents Park they have called home for 20 years.
“With our kids leading busy lives with children of their own, we felt it was no longer necessary to look after a large property, pool and garden and wanted a new home that allowed more time for us and less time on maintenance,” Mr Peterson said.
“Greenbank is such a thriving area and we immediately fell in love with the Everleigh vision and the beautiful surrounds.”
Mirvac Queensland residential general manager, Warwick Bible, said the new parkland would be for both residents of Everleigh and the broader Greenbank community to enjoy.
