Liverpool Mayor Ned Mannoun officially opened Playfield Park at Georges Fair today, delighting children who live in the new homes surrounding the park.
Playfield Park is the fourth neighbourhood park to be built at Georges Fair. It is situated between Terracotta Road, Escura Crescent and Vogue Avenue.
At 4,840m² Playfield Park is the size of eleven full sized basketball courts or five Olympic swimming pools. It has been designed by leading landscape architects, Aecom, to engage primary school aged children in active play.
A key feature of the park is its learn-to-ride bike track, complete with lane markings. Age-specific adventure playground equipment will develop children’s climbing and balancing skills.
“We appreciate the contribution that quality open space makes to both the aesthetic appeal of a neighbourhood and in enabling an active, healthy lifestyle,” said Mr Nathan Huon, Project Director NSW, Investa Land.
“That is why Investa Land has made a significant commitment to open space at Georges Fair, incorporating three large adventure playgrounds with a variety of play equipment, bike paths and walking paths to encourage children and their parents to engage with their local environment and get to know their neighbours,” said Mr Huon.
In addition to the playground at Playfield Park, residents of Georges Fair can enjoy Phil Tolhurst Park as well as Central Park and Southern Park both featuring expansive adventure playgrounds with barbeque facilities. The half-size basketball court and 20 metre flying fox at Central Park have proven popular with older children and teenagers.
Land at Georges Fair was first released in late 2008 after extensive regeneration of the site which had been occupied by brickworks for more than 40 years. Georges Fair is now home to approximately 850 families and hundreds more homes are under construction.
With only 14 lots remaining from an initial 1100, families keen to build their dream home at Georges Fair should act quickly.
“These 14 lots are definitely the very last lots and they will sell out within weeks,” said Mr Huon.
Georges Fair is located close to numerous child care centers, schools and the University of Western Sydney, and within a short drive of several golf courses, riverside parks and shopping centres. The M5, M7 and Holsworthy train station offer excellent transport links.
