The park is part of Catalina estate’s ‘green link’ that will eventually stretch across three precincts from Clarkson station to the Mindarie foreshore.

The fitness station includes a box-jump/step-up designed to suit CrossFit enthusiasts.

Satterley Property Group chief executive Nigel Satterley said the 3km green link would focus on recreational movement within the estate, linking parks, playgrounds and paths.

‘Residents can traverse the entire development in family-friendly surroundings, encircled by the natural ecosystem,’ Mr Satterley said.

Rear laneways have been used along the greenway to minimise the number of driveways intersecting it and about 15 per cent of the estate is reserved as public open space, including landscaped parks and picnic areas, sporting fields and protected habitat.

The developer expects to finish the second stage of the green link next year, extending east past the future primary school site, and featuring more fitness equipment.
