Satterley Property Group has created another two of the 13 parks planned in Catalina estate, and chief executive Nigel Satterley said the spaces would encourage social interactions.

�People want to live in vibrant communities, with neighbours of all age ranges, and great parks and outdoor spaces to meet, socialise and exercise,� he said.

Located along Aviator Boulevard and Perkins Drive, the stage 11 park includes an amphitheatre, a feature shelter with picnic tables, bike racks and a swing set, with future plans for public art.

It also has five pieces of exercise equipment, including chin-up bars, which are currently in place, and there are plans to add push-up bars, leg-lift dip bars, parallel bars and a sit-up board in late 2015.

The second park, on Makassar Way, will feature picnic tables, table tennis and nature play elements, including logs and ropes.

�The elements in this park will provide somewhere imaginative for kids to explore and play,� Mr Satterley said.

The Tamala Park Regional Council, which is comprised of the cities of Joondalup, Perth, Stirling, Vincent and Wanneroo, plus the towns of Cambridge and Victoria Park, commissioned Satterley to develop its landholding in Clarkson and Mindarie.

Landscaped parklands, playgrounds and walkways feature on the estate master plan and will create a 2.7km green link with paths winding from Clarkson station in the east to the beach.
