recreational facilities at 1881 Tullimbar

Dahua Group (Dahua) recently completed the first stage of its $1.5 million outdoor recreational facilities in 1881 Tullimbar


These works, designed by landscape architect Cardno include three expansive parks, interactive playgrounds, exercise equipment, BBQ areas, walk and bike paths, shelters, kick-about areas and green open spaces for outdoor recreational pursuits.


Mina Hanna, Development Manager at Dahua Group comments, “Delivering high quality community amenities is an integral part of our work. All new recreational facilities in 1881 Tullimbar provide easy access to open green spaces, placing a higher value on the development and give a sense of place and ownership to residents. The park spaces encourage healthy lifestyles through social interaction and play, availability of exercise equipment and passive spaces for quiet reflection.”

Melanie Shea, Landscape Architect at Cardno comments, “The design intent was to create an easily accessible network of green spaces catering to a variety of needs and abilities with a focus on physical and social health. The design considers how people move through and use the space, while providing opportunities for interaction with and appreciation of the natural environment and riparian corridor beyond.  

“The inclusive nature of the design provides accessible pathways throughout the site with a number of access points, structured and unstructured play elements and several seating opportunities. BBQ’s, shelters and seating provided near the playground allow passive surveillance and opportunities for meeting and gathering. A number of exercise stations deliver an activity circuit along the footpath for physical activity while kickabout spaces enable both passive and active pursuits”.
