A free family fun day is set to herald the launch of an exciting new 1.25 hectare riverfront park at Stockland’s Foreshore Coomera community on the Gold Coast.

An action-packed program including live music as well as games for children will form part of the official opening of Foreshore Jetty Park, located on Foreshore Street, on Saturday, 2 February, from 11am-1pm.

In addition, a variety of delicious food options will be available for purchase on the day.

The park, in an idyllic setting on the banks of the Coomera River under a canopy of mature shade trees, will provide the perfect backdrop for family barbecues and get-togethers as well as opportunities for residents and visitors to enjoy kayaking and fishing.

A custom-designed covered timber jetty with seating features a launch pontoon for kayaks, along with an excellent vantage point for throwing a line. A kayaking instructor will be on hand to offer tips and take people out on to the water in kayaks for free at the opening. 

David Laner, Queensland General Manager for Residential Communities at Stockland, said the park complemented the natural beauty of Foreshore Coomera which was proving popular with homebuyers looking for a healthy, active lifestyle in a convenient location.

“This outstanding new parkland reflects Stockland’s commitment to setting new benchmarks for liveability, exemplified by the fact that more than half of Foreshore Coomera is dedicated to open space and conservation,’’ Mr Laner said.

“Foreshore Jetty Park will also feature 600 metres of walking and cycling trails along the river bank allowing residents and visitors to enjoy the natural setting as they exercise.

“It also makes the most of the relaxed coastal lifestyle and the stunning waterside setting on offer at Foreshore Coomera.’’         

New trees have been planted as part of the landscaping, along with the construction of a picnic shelter, drink fountain, barbecue and toilet facilities.

Foreshore Coomera is only 26 kilometres from the Gold Coast CBD and just a short drive to the Coomera Train Station, with easy access to the M1 Motorway.

The Coomera East Shopping Centre is located directly adjacent to the community and the $470 million Westfield Coomera is just two kilometres from Foreshore Coomera, with outstanding retail, dining and entertainment options.

The community is also close to sporting ovals, employment options, public and private schools, childcare facilities, tertiary education, health and retail services, Gold Coast theme parks and four renowned golf courses.

Land is currently available from $252,900 for a 280 square metre lot to $436,900 for a 496 square metre lot.

In addition, Stockland’s Home Sweeter Home Sale is offering sweet deals to homebuyers at Foreshore Coomera from 14 January to 3 March, with $10,000 off all residential lots at Queensland communities. Building bonuses up to the value of $25,000 are also available from a selection of Stockland’s builder partners.
