Local residents will be ‘free-wheeling’ following the official opening of a new bike park and fitness equipment which launched on 8 February. The bike park, located in Kalkallo at Stockland Cloverton, showcases innovative designs with the diverse space catered for local communities.
The park offers residents and the wider community a new bike trail and a children's playground alongside outdoor gym equipment.
The bike park aims to encourage residents to lead and sustain healthy active lifestyles through the playground including a slide, rope bridge, swings, seesaw and more. Locals can take full advantage of the gym apparatuses provided, spending quality time outdoors together.
James Westh, Project Director of Stockland Cloverton, said the new bike park is an exciting new way for the whole community to get involved with each other and stay active.
“We are so thrilled to open Cloverton’s new bike park, one of the most innovative parks to be featured specifically designed for all to enjoy. With a bike track, fitness station and playground installed around the park, residents can get a glimpse of what Cloverton has to offer. We really want to encourage the community to get outdoors together with the ability to stay fit and active.’’
Facilities at the new Cloverton bike park includes a shelter with chairs and tables, a bike pump and a large open space ideal for outdoor sports and picnics.
The development coincides with Stockland's Life Live and Get Active program which helps residents build a fitter, healthier and happier lifestyle through free daily fitness classes.
James Westh continues: “This new bike park forms part of Stockland’s liveability plan to provide quality shared amenities for the now and into the future.”
The park complements the existing open spaces at Kandy Drive Park, as well as the recently opened dog park and an Indigenous creek themed park set to open late this year.
Cloverton is the largest residential project in Victoria and lies just over 38 kilometres north of Melbourne’s CBD. It will be home to 30,000 residents upon completion and already over 1,000 homesites have been snapped up to-date.
Cloverton will also become a centre of education outside of Melbourne with sought-after retail centres, well-connected public transport and medical services. Cloverton's location is further enhanced by the picturesque surrounds of the Merri Creek and 80 hectares of lush open space.
