AUSTRALIA’S first free music streaming system has been added to an Eglinton park’s attractions, which already include a water playground.
Developers LandCorp and Satterley have added the music system to a barbecue at Kinkuna Park in the Allara estate.
“This innovative speaker system is linked to an amp and a streaming service that will play music at the touch of a button so families can listen to all the hits while enjoying their barbecue and picnics,” Satterley’s senior development manager Carl Buckly said.
“The music system has been approved by both governing and licensing authorities in Australia (PPCA and ARIA).
“Both have advised that this is the first time that they have issued a permanent licence for the broadcasting of music in a park.
“The music system will initially be run on a trial basis for 12 months and based on usage will be removed or continue after this period.
“The music is filtered for appropriate songs and will play between 8am-6pm daily.”
Mr Buckly said they were developing the estate as a walkable neighbourhood linked by open spaces and designed it to protect the environment and use resources responsibly.
