Pet-friendly Bellbird Park community draws in buyers

December 3, 2018 | IN Media Release and News | BY AVID | 3 min read

A Greater Springfield community is drawing in buyers looking for a new ‘leash on life’ with its pet-friendly atmosphere and amenities – including more than 42 hectares of parks and forest trails.

AVID Property Group’s Brentwood Forest, which last week officially launched its latest addition to community green ‘jewels’, a new fenced puppy park, has become a popular community for buyers with pets. Brentwood Forest’s much-loved jewels are a collection of green space, family parks and forest trails weaving through and connecting the community together.

Kat Schofield, new local resident and owner of four-year-old border collie, Diezal, said she found the pet-friendly facilities and wide range of parks at Brentwood Forest a huge drawcard when she was house hunting with her husband.

“Brentwood Forest is such a good area for pets – nearly every afternoon we go for a walk or go to the dog park, you get to know your neighbours and the other dogs’ names and when you’re out and about, everyone is really friendly and stops to say ‘hi’ to each other,” Ms Schofield said.

“If someone finds a lost dog, they will post it on the Facebook community page and we all help out – we all look out for each other.

“My favourite spot in Brentwood Forest is up near the dog park – up on the grass area at the top there is a view of all of Brentwood Forest and surrounding areas – it really is lovely up there.”

AVID Property Group General Manager Queensland Bruce Harper said Brentwood Forest, located in Bellbird Park, has been designed specifically with pets and active families in mind.

“The community here in Brentwood Forest is well established, with the selection six parks, open spaces and forest trails – the jewels of Brentwood Forest – popular with pet owners and families in particular, who are always out and about walking, exercising or just catching up with neighbours,” Mr Harper said.

“We really wanted to create a community that welcomes people and their four-legged friends, which is why we’ve included both a dog park and a puppy park within our new Tucker Family Park – both proving to be a real hit with locals.”

A 2017 study showed that pet ownership can ‘strengthen the social fabric of local neighbourhoods’1, with dog owners five times more likely to know people in their community than those without pets. Mr Harper says this couldn’t be truer at Brentwood Forest.

“We understand that for many buyers, buying a new home means the opportunity to have a pet for the first time, which can be a real motivator for home ownership and for choosing the right area,” Mr Harper said.

“We have worked hard to make sure Brentwood Forest is a great community for pet owners and for families, so it really is wonderful to see the area become such a welcoming, connected community.”
