The park design draws on the unique bayside location of Newport, with materials and plant species reflecting the refined coastal character of the development.
Two separate play areas provide multiple play opportunities, one a fully shaded space for toddlers and the other containing a custom net and slide structure for older kids.
Custom precast concrete shelters provide generous spaces for gatherings, with BBQs, a bubbler and an amenities block providing all the facilities a family would need to spend a day in the park.
All the key items in the park are linked by a central sinuous paved area framed by sandstone seating walls with landmark mature Norfolk Island Pines providing shade at key moments.
