A NEW park due to open in Golden Bay next month is rapidly taking shape.

The 7500sq m open space in the estate’s Seaside precinct will have a nature play area with a tree hut and slide, rope bridges, wind chimes, talk tubes, a xylophone, flying fox, a birds nest swing and logs.

It will also feature barbecue and picnic facilities, a section of retained bushland, bike racks, a drinking fountain, shelter, wheelchair access and panoramic views of the ocean.

Peet Limited’s Brendan Gore said the park would encourage residents to lead healthy and active lifestyles with more like it planned for future Peet developments.

“The Golden Bay masterplan anticipates 10 landscaped parklands with grassed areas, play equipment, paths and barbecue facilities,” he said.

The open spaces will accommodate about 5000 residents once the estate is complete.
