Nautical-themed playground set to add splash of excitement to free family event at Newport

15 June 2016

An exciting nautical-themed adventure playground will be completed in time for a free family event on Saturday, 18 June, at Stockland’s $590 million Newport community under construction on the Redcliffe Peninsula.

The Seaside Family Event, which will be held next to Newport’s Sales and Information Centre on the corner of Griffith and Boardman Roads, will run from 1pm to 3pm and features entertainment, food and fun activities.

Adding to the excitement of the day, youngsters will be able to road test Newport’s new nautical-themed playground which is located next to the sales and information centre overlooking the water.

David Laner, Regional Manager at Stockland, said landscaping teams and other contractors had been working around the clock to ensure the playground would be ready in time for the celebrations.

“Youngsters are going to have so much fun at the playground,’’ Mr Laner said. “With its prime location by the water, the shaded play area will inspire kids to let their imaginations run wild as they try out the equipment which includes cubby houses connected by a drawbridge, slides, swings and a treasure chest.”

The seaside-themed event will include fish and chips, an ice cream truck and the Redcliffe PCYC will be holding a sausage sizzle, all free of charge for anyone attending the event.

Kids can also look forward to face painting, sand artistry, art and craft activities and guests will be able to test their skills on a mechanical surfboard. Other highlights include a drumming circle, chill out areas and a live musician.

Mr Laner encouraged residents from around the Moreton Bay region to attend the event at the new waterside community coming to life on a 143 hectare site on the Redcliffe Peninsula.

“This will be such a fun event and we are expecting many pre-registered buyers, who have already snapped up the first home sites, to attend,’’ he said. “It will also be a great opportunity for potential buyers who want to learn more about Newport.”
