The community will have access to 14 hectares of open space (about the same area to eight MCG playing fields). There will be green linear reserves along many boundaries of the new neighbourhood providing 6km of walking and cycling paths, landscaped with grasses, trees and shrubs to provide peaceful green connections between the established and new neighbourhoods. In many places, these will be around 20m wide. Many existing small pocket parks that currently interface with the new neighbourhood will be expanded – some will be almost twice as big.
A large new park for the whole community to enjoy will be a key feature. This park will be big enough for recreational spork, picnics and barbecues, along with an all access adventure playground. A natural amphitheatre design will support outdoor community theatre, open air concerts and gatherings.
Around 850 trees currently on the site will be retained and 2685 new trees will be planted meaning there will be 10% more trees on the site than there is currently.
