Hundreds of people joined in an action-packed line-up of free family fun as Stockland opened an exciting $1.6 million park at its rapidly growing Foreshore Coomera community on the Gold Coast on the weekend (22 June).
A free circus workshop, mobile zoo, face painting, funky hair creations and a jumping castle were all part of the celebrations marking the launch of the brand new Eagle Tree Park which features a state-of-the-art playground.
Incorporating a twisting slide and an array of innovative equipment from swings to a play tower, along with a basketball half-court, picnic shelters, barbecue facilities and a kick-around space, the park is set to become a recreational hub for local families.
David Laner, Queensland General Manager for Residential Communities at Stockland, said the opening of Eagle Tree Park marked the latest milestone for the community which this year has welcomed its first residents, launched a 16-home display village and opened a waterside park complete with a jetty.
“It is exciting to watch our vision for Foreshore Coomera rapidly becoming a reality, with our newest park a valuable addition to the infrastructure we are putting in place to foster active and heathy lifestyles,’’ Mr Laner said.
“We are delighted at the progress being made at the community, which is resonating with buyers because of its laidback waterside lifestyle and its broad range of affordable, quality housing options in the heart of the Gold Coast’s thriving northern corridor.’’
Eagle Tree Park is at the corner of Foreshore Street and Dales Way and complements the recently opened Foreshore Jetty Park, which incorporates a launch pontoon for kayaks and an idyllic setting for family barbecues and get-togethers.
Councillor Cameron Caldwell (Division 3), who took part in ribbon-cutting ceremony to formally open Eagle Tree Park, congratulated Stockland on its vision for creating facilities at Foreshore Coomera for bringing people together.
“The strong attendance at this opening is a reflection of the region’s fine community spirit and attests to Eagle Tree Park’s place as a popular hub for families into the future,’’ Cr Caldwell said.
Foreshore Coomera is just a short drive to the Coomera Train Station, with easy access to the M1 Motorway.
Work has begun on the adjacent Coomera State High School, which is expected to open for Year 7 students at the start of first term next year. Stage one of the project is to include junior classrooms, sports centre and an oval.
Coomera East Shopping Centre is also next door to the community, and the new $470 million Westfield Coomera is just two kilometres away with outstanding retail, dining and entertainment options.
Sports facilities, employment options, a range of public and private schools, childcare facilities, tertiary education, health and retail services are close by, along with Gold Coast theme parks and four renowned golf courses.
