North Harbour’s extensive parklands and open space at Burpengary East have taken out top honours in the Parks and Recreation category at the prestigious 2021 UDIA Queensland Awards for Excellence.
North Harbour’s open space includes five parks, free events such as yoga and parkrun, and features 6km of riverside mountain bike trails, walking trails, and educational recreation facilities which showcase the history of the original “Moray Fields” settlement at the Queensland Heritage Registered site.
North Harbour was also named a finalist in the highly competitive Environmental Excellence award category, highlighting our commitment to sustainability, innovative and efficient practices.
North Harbour Project Director, Bryan Finney, said the North Harbour team was delighted to be recognised as an industry leader in both categories.
“We are extremely proud of what has been achieved so far at North Harbour,” said Mr Finney. “Being recognised as a winner and finalist for these two awards categories shows our commitment to creating one of the finest residential communities anywhere in Australia.
North Harbour’s connected master plan promotes the site’s natural features and seamlessly blends residential areas with pocket parks, playgrounds, gathering spaces, picnic areas and gardens.
“One of the key drawcards for new residents at North Harbour is the amount of green open space and parkland they can enjoy here,” said Mr Finney. “Our community currently offers five unique parks with a sixth expected to open in the coming months.
“The most exciting part is that the award winning open space delivered at North Harbour so far is just a fraction of what we ultimately hope to provide. There is much more to come once additional approvals have been achieved. The extensive riverfront land within the project is a wonderful opportunity for green space and outdoor attractions of regional significance, which will work hand in hand with the marina precinct to provide new jobs, tourism and recreational opportunities for North Harbour residents and the broader community.”
A State Government’s commitment to declaring North Harbour a Priority Development Area (PDA) will see a massive expansion in the community’s recreational offering, including a 319-hectare riverfront parkland, a 400-berth marina and new waterfront village.
