30 trees moved at new shipwreck park in Hilbert

AS many as 30 trees planted at Hilbert’s new shipwreck park will be moved.

The trees were planted as beautification for the opening of the $4.8 million all-abilities park in Stockland’s Sienna Wood estate.

A Stockland spokesperson said the trees would be carefully re-located to the Sienna Wood town centre to allow for the future upgrade to Eleventh Road.

“The trees were planted to enhance the greenery, shade and community aesthetic of Sienna Wood and will remain until the future planned upgrade of Eleventh road commences.

“At this point in time the trees will be relocated to Sienna Wood’s Town Centre of which construction is yet to commence.

“As infrastructure upgrades can take some time, we regularly plant greenery in our master planned communities with future knowledge that they will be relocated.

“New trees will be planted as part of the upgrade to Eleventh Road.”

The six hectare park has been a big hit with local children since it opened on December 3, incorporating a 6,000 square metre enclosed play space featuring a 30-metre shipwreck, giant swings, all-abilities flying fox, trampolines, table tennis and a basketball court.
