New health-hub park to be crowning jewel of Brentwood Forest

November 2, 2017 | IN Media Release and News | BY AVID | 3 min read

Construction has started on a new fitness oriented park, which is expected to be completed by late 2017, in Bellbird Park, at AVID Property Group’s Brentwood Forest community.

Tucker Family Park will add to the existing parks and open spaces at Brentwood Forest, comprising 3 of the 6 green jewels of the community – the sports park, pooch park and fitness park.

The fitness park incorporates a number of state of the art features including an outdoor gym, built with an accompanying app for exercises, a one-of-a-kind 8.2m play tower and the sports park offers a multipurpose sports court. The pooch park will feature a 1600m2 dog off leash area, the first of its kind in Bellbird Park.

AVID Property Group General Manager Queensland Bruce Harper said park facilities like this deliver more than just beautiful spaces for the community; they are important facilities in aiding with health and wellbeing for residents and visitors alike.

“This park has such a great range of amenities, facilities that encourage active play for kids and offer adults exercise opportunities as well,” Mr Harper said.

Once completed, the park will be over a hectare in size, adding to the 37ha of open space at Brentwood Forest.

“Whether you’re a gym junkie, taking your dog for a walk to the dog park or you just want to have a game of basketball with your friends, you’ll be able to come down to Tucker Family Park.

“With sedentary lifestyles on the rise and kids spending so many hours in front of screens, offering families and individuals an exciting place to exercise is a really important step for building not just a happy community, but a healthy community as well.”

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, only 43 per cent of adults meet the Australian Government’s recommended physical activity guidelines and children aged 5-17 spend nearly one and half times as much time on screen based activities as they spend exercising.*

Parks like Tucker Family Park provide an important resource in encouraging active lifestyles in the community, with the Heart Foundation finding^ that park users are more likely to achieve recommended levels of physical activity than non-users.

The study also found that the presence of supportive infrastructure within parks such as footpaths, wooded areas, constructed and natural trails, and sports facilities or equipment has been associated with park use and physical activity and walking within parks.

“We have already delivered two of our green jewels, our adventure park at Rotary Park and our Outlook Park; and we’re in the process of building a $1m linear pathway through bushland to create our forest park.

“These green jewels give people a place to come together, meet their neighbours and get active,”

 Block sizes available in Brentwood Forest’s latest release Cockatoo range from an easy care 315m² to 544m² family-sized blocks, which means there are options to suit all living choices and lifestyles.

Land prices start from $202,000 for blocks that are levelled and retained in an established community, close to a range of amenities.
