Williams Landing residents and locals now have access to a $4 million park and wetland, marking a major step in the development of the suburb.
The newly complete Addison Park and Wetland adds five hectares of green space to the masterplanned community. Within this, the wetland incorporates 3,815 square metres of public space which has been transformed into a community park—including playground equipment, walking and running paths, fitness stations, open green space, shelter, barbeque facilities and seating areas.
“The park and wetland complements the broader natural beauty and abundance of open space already available. Its design offers expansive open areas for the residents within the Addison neighbourhood and the wider Williams Landing community,” says Lloyd Collins, Cedar Woods state manager.
The aviation themed playground includes a jungle gym, swing set and rope course. It is the final children’s playground to be delivered, ensuring that the community’s youngest residents have access to infrastructure that fosters creativity, activity, and growth. Additionally, seven ponds surround the parkland, creating an ecosystem for flora and fauna across Williams Landing. To allow for greater enjoyment of the wetlands’ tranquility, a viewing jetty extends into the waters of the southernmost pond.
“The idea for the Addison Park and Wetland stemmed from a desire to improve the existing wetlands. We wanted to create a haven for local wildlife in addition to developing an open space where residents could come together for picnics, sports, or simply to relax with friends and family,” Collins adds.
The Addison Park and Wetland promotes an active lifestyle for residents of all ages and abilities while providing leisure opportunities just metres from the suburb’s architecturally designed homes and town centre.
An official opening will mark the completion of the Addison Park and Wetland on 19 October. The event, in partnership with Boxwars, will allow participants to craft their own cardboard plane costume and feature face painting, games and food and drinks.
