Stockland is renowned for its creative parks and playgrounds and the new state-of-the-art Eagle Tree Park, located at the corner of Foreshore Street and Dales Way, is certainly no exception.
Incorporating an array of innovative equipment including a twisting slide, swings and play tower, along with a basketball half-court, picnic shelters, barbecue facilities and a ‘kick around’ space, the park is already becoming a recreational hub for local families.
David Laner, Queensland General Manager for Residential Communities at Stockland, said the opening of Eagle Tree Park marked the latest milestone for the community, which has recently welcomed its first residents, launched a 21-home display village and opened a waterside park complete with a jetty.
“It is exciting to watch our vision for Foreshore Coomera rapidly becoming a reality, with our newest park a valuable addition to the infrastructure we are putting in place to foster active and heathy lifestyles,’’ Mr Laner said. “Sports and an active lifestyle are at the core of Foreshore Coomera with more than half of the community dedicated to open space and conservation, and additional planned amenities including bike and walking trails.”
Surrounded by nature, the community makes the most of its location bordered by the Coomera River and Oxley Creek, including 2.5 kilometres of river frontage and more than 51 hectares of conservation areas and open space – providing the perfect setting for relaxed family living.
Foreshore Jetty Park is another park that opened within the community earlier this year. In an idyllic setting on the banks of the Coomera River, under a canopy of mature shade trees, Foreshore Jetty Park provides the perfect backdrop for family barbecues and get-togethers as well as opportunities for residents and visitors to enjoy kayaking and fishing.
“Foreshore Jetty Park features 600 metres of walking and cycling trails along the riverbank, allowing residents and visitors to enjoy the natural setting as they exercise,” said David. “It also makes the most of the relaxed coastal lifestyle and the stunning waterside setting on offer at Foreshore Coomera.”
A custom-designed covered timber jetty at the park offers direct access to Coomera River, providing a launch pontoon for kayaks, as well as an excellent vantage point for fishing. Family picnics are also well catered for at Foreshore Jetty Park, with a picnic shelter, barbecue facilities, a unisex toilet, a drinking fountain and tap.
Foreshore is also close to a wide range of education hubs, from childcare centres to schools, including the adjacent $64 million Foxwell State Secondary College, which is opening in 2020.
“The state-of-the-art high school, located on Foxwell Road, will be able to cater for up to 250 Year 7 students on day one of the school year next year, with stage one of development including junior classrooms, a covered lunch area, sports centre and an oval,” said David.
Other schools close by include Coomera Rivers State School, Pimpana State Secondary College and the TAFE Queensland Gold Coast campus.
The community is also well situated for shopping with outstanding retail, dining and entertainment options provided by the Coomera East Shopping Centre, located directly adjacent to the community, and the $470 million Westfield
Coomera just two kilometres away. It is also close to the popular dining and cafe precincts at Sanctuary Cove and Hope Island.
“Being just a short drive to Coomera Train Station and easy access to the M1 Motorway, Foreshore Coomera is steadily growing in popularity amongst local families looking for a family friendly community.”
“Offering parks, 51 hectares of conservation area, yet located only 26 kilometres from the Gold Coast CBD, Foreshore is attracting a wide range of new home buyers looking for a relaxed waterside lifestyle surrounded by nature,” said David. “Families are an integral part of our communities. They help lay the foundations for a strong, connected community containing a diverse mix of buyers of all ages and backgrounds.”
“Promoting a healthy and active lifestyle, the community will ultimately feature 9.5 kilometres of walking and cycling trails, with much of it set alongside nature,” said David. “So far, approximately 6.5 kilometres of trails have been constructed, allowing residents of all ages to wind their way through leafy parkland as well and the view along 600 metres of river banks.”
