Hundreds attend launch event to enjoy fun in the sun
MELBOURNE, 10 OCTOBER 2018
Grand Prix Park at Frasers Property Australia’s Berwick Waters community got a big thumbs up from families at a special launch event on Saturday, 6 October.
Hundreds of residents, including youngsters on bikes, trikes and scooters turned out for the event, enjoying their first blast around the park’s Grand Prix inspired bike track, playground and picnic facilities in perfect weather.
Hungry crowds were kept well fed with food trucks and a sausage sizzle courtesy of the Berwick Scouts while children stayed entertained with a jumping castle and face painting station.
Sarah Bloom, General Manager – Residential Victoria, Frasers Property Australia says the day was a great success.
“Creating an outdoor space that would really capture children’s imagination and encourage them to get outdoors and be active was one of the aims of Grand Prix Park so it was encouraging to see so many children enjoying the track,” Ms Bloom says.
“The sunshine certainly helped make the day a real family-centred celebration and I think it was a great opportunity for residents to see what an asset the park will be for them and the wider community.”
The park has been built in the community’s College Green precinct and is open to Berwick Waters’ residents and the wider area, with a variety of play and leisure spaces for children and adults.
The track weaves through different ‘experiences’, from a race through the ‘Black Forest’ zone based on the famous Hockenheim F1 track in Germany’s Rhine Valley, to a snake run zooming down the grassy hills in the northern reaches, and adrenaline-pumping dips across the start/finish line.
The sprawling park also features a communal space for BBQs and picnics, grassy slopes overlooking the track, informal nature trails through existing trees and sensory plants, pedestrian paths and grassed kick-about spaces.
Frasers Property team members were on-hand on the day to field inquiries from potential new residents, keen to learn more about upcoming purchasing opportunities at the growing community.
Located 50km south-east of Melbourne, Berwick Waters is a joint venture between Frasers Property Australia and Mondous Property Australia and is located in Clyde North.
On completion, Berwick Waters will feature more than 50ha of parks and open spaces for residents, with plans for 9km of shared bike paths and walking trails.
