Park-goers lead the way to a healthier lifestyle

Our community has been designed with active-living in mind, featuring 42 hectares of natural open space with state-of-the-art local parks, including our Tucker Family Park, all connected by a collection of walking paths.

Open space in a growing community is important. The Healthy Active by Design study done by the Heart Foundation shows that simply being close to a park, open green space or a walking path encourages active living, which can lead to improved health outcomes and lower your risk of heart disease and stroke by up to 37 per cent.

AVID Property Group Senior Development Manager Peter MacLeod said the parks of Brentwood Forest are the activity hub of the community.

The Tucker Family Park is a highlight of our community and encourages residents to incorporate activity into their everyday routine,” Mr MacLeod said.

So many Australians are caught in the habit of coming home and putting on the TV, so it’s fantastic we can offer families and individuals the opportunity to exercise and get outdoors to ultimately improve their health and kickstart new habits.

Brentwood Forest resident Alison Clark and her family moved into Brentwood Forest six years ago and are still enjoying the benefits of living a masterplanned community surrounded by parks today.

The main attractions of the Brentwood Forest community for our family were the parks and walkability of the neighbourhood,” Ms Clark said.

Having young kids, it was important for us to live somewhere they could run around and play.

Everything is so close – we can easily walk to the Rotary Park and Tucker Family Park from our home.

Often the kids will just get on their bikes and go — it’s a wonderful lifestyle.
