New park launches with family fun in Brentwood Forest

A new park has opened in AVID Property Group’s Brentwood Forest community, offering locals a range of amenities including a one-of-a-kind 9.2m play tower, outdoor gym and 1600m2 dog-off-leash area.

Tucker Family Park will open officially on 24 February with a family-friendly celebration, giving locals the opportunity to be the first to try out the innovative playground and facilities at the park.

Further events will be held to celebrate the different elements of the park, including the launch of a six-week boot camp to celebrate the sports and fitness facilities of the park and a celebration for Brentwood Forest’s four-legged friends to celebrate the dog-off-leash area.

AVID Property Group General Manager Bruce Harper said the park opening was an important milestone for Brentwood Forest.

“We’re so excited to deliver this great community asset and complete the final three of Brentwood Forests six jewels – the Play Park, the Sports and Fitness Park and the Pooch Park – for our residents and for the Greater Springfield community more broadly,” Mr Harper said.

“We’ll be celebrating these great features of Tucker Family Park with a series of fun events for the whole family – pets included.

“Launching our six-week boot camp, we really want to help residents get familiar with our outdoor gym.”

For those who can’t make it to the boot camp, Brentwood Forest has commissioned a unique app developed specifically for the gym for people to download, helping them to plan their workouts and make the most of the equipment.

The celebration of the new dog-off-leash area, the first in Bellbird Park, will include a free dog wash and dog agility classes.

“We haven’t forgotten Brentwood Forest’s family pets, either – our Pooch Park will be a great place for dogs to meet and play, and for their owners to get to know each other,” Mr Harper said.

Tucker Family Park will eventually be connected to the existing Rotary Park with a $1m linear pathway through the bushland within the development.

“The park is set amongst the beautiful retained bushland of Brentwood Forest, making it a great place to enjoy a picnic and relax as well,” Mr Harper said.

“We’re looking forward to delivering our linear pathway, giving residents even more opportunities to enjoy the bushland and open spaces at Brentwood Forest.”
