The centrepiece of the parklands includes a 3-hectare lake, playground, 12 kilometres of continuous paths and trails, lookout platforms, wetland areas, outdoor exercise hubs, barbecue facilities, inclusive play environments and informal play areas.
Mike Milligan, Project Director, said: “The opening of the parklands is an exciting milestone for the growing community and marks the completion of the regeneration of the South Creek Tributary into an urban riparian parkland.
"It provides the community with plenty of green, open space to support an active lifestyle".
Riparian Parklands also includes a series of vegetated ponds, flowing channels, basins and raingardens which work to improve urban water quality.
A revegetation strategy has been implemented to regenerate the riparian ecosystem, with more than 34,000 new trees planted and approximately 900,000 native plants grown from seed. This will provide an urban canopy for the area, as well as habitat for wildlife.
