Stockland has officially unveiled a new community park, Golden Whistler Park, set in the heart of McKeachies Run Estate, Aberglasslyn.
The park, which has been constructed in collaboration with Maitland City Council, boasts views of the nearby ranges of Rosebrook and Maitland Vale for both McKeachies Run residents and the greater Maitland community to enjoy.
The 5000 square metre park provides a diverse range of play and passive recreation activities for all ages and abilities to enjoy, including a flying fox; climbing net with slide; swings; and sheltered picnic settings with panoramic views stretching across Aberglasslyn to the Hunter River.
Key aspects of the park design were derived from consultation with students from Rutherford Primary School to gain a better understanding of what they wanted in their local play space.
Golden Whistler Park is the final piece of community amenity to be developed by Stockland, completing McKeachies Run Estate.
To mark the occasion, Mayor of Maitland, Loretta Baker joined Stockland representatives in an official ribbon-cutting ceremony over the weekend (Saturday, June 5).
Mike Milligan, Project Director of Stockland said: "We're proud to have developed the McKeachie's Run community and complete the project on a positive note with the successful delivery of Golden Whistler Park.
"Our community needs are important to us and as such, collaboration with both Maitland City Council and Rutherford Primary School ensured we delivered a key community asset that all could enjoy."
