THE newly-launched Pegasus Park in Bennett Springs has paved the way for more parks to be built in the near future.

Mirvac’s Pegasus Park in Iluma Private Estate features world-best solar-powered smart benches equipped with WiFi access, wireless device charges and two USB connectors, playground equipment and fitness nodes to cater for little athletics, cricket and basketball.

More than 900 people attended the park’s official launch on February 24, which featured appearances from Perth Wildcats star Damian Martin, Perth Scorchers players and superheroes.

Mirvac residential development manager Paige Walker, who launched the park with West Swan MLA Rita Saffioti and Swan Mayor David Lucas, said Mirvac would be delivering a series of interconnecting spaces.

“All future parks and amenities at Iluma Private Estate will link together via a central boulevard pathway, providing residents with easy and secure access throughout the community,” she said.

“The next stage will integrate a larger community focussed park with barbeque facilities, and plans for a third park will cater for young families with amenities to suit toddlers and younger children.”

The next park is estimated to start construction in early 2019.
