Safe and Sustainable Local Childcare

North Harbour

The North Harbour centre will be one of the first centres within the Edge network to provide children with eco-friendly nappies and wipes which is part of the company’s move towards sustainability. Made from 100% pure bamboo, these eco-friendly products are completely biodegradable.

Edge Early Learning Chief Executive Officer, Annie Bryce, said the move to switch over to sustainable products is one of the company’s priorities. “We have been planning to switch to more sustainable products for quite some time. These products are completely natural, which is perfect for children with sensitive skin, and they’re also good for the environment.”

As part of the initiative to move toward sustainability, Edge Early Learning has also swapped to plant-based cleaning products and include end-to-end recycling programs in all centres. The team will also be incorporating vegetable gardens, worm farms and compost bins into their educational programs to help teach children about the importance of sustainability.

North Harbour Parks and Community Facilities are the Best in Southeast Queensland!

1000 Acres of Open Space and Parks

North Harbour’s proposed parks and community facilities cover more than half of the North Harbour site at a total of 1000 acres, an area approximately the size of 600 football fields. Each park in North Harbour has something unique to offer and is designed to connect through bike and walking tracks as part of the North Harbour masterplan.

The Village Park: The Village Park was the first park to open at North Harbour in 2015 and offers play equipment suitable for older and younger children, plenty of space to play, BBQ and picnic shelters, and free Wi-Fi! The Village Park is also the home of Cam’s Boot Camp and is a popular central meeting place for families in our community.

Reflections Park: Reflections opened in 2017 and is located at the western corner of North Harbour, adjacent to Raff Creek Eco-Corridor. With play equipment for younger children, Reflections has plenty of flat space around for playing, and is also the home of our free weekly yoga class, Sunrise Yoga in the Park.

Riparian Park: Riparian Park opened in May 2019 and is already extremely popular having hosted the inaugural community cricket match between neighbourhood streets! With a flying fox, heaps of play equipment, fitness equipment and half basketball court, Riparian Park also continues the stretch of bike tracks and walking tracks along Mornington Parade which begin at Reflections Park.

The Heritage Park: One of the most exciting and unique parts of the North Harbour masterplan is our Heritage Park which is located along the banks of Caboolture River.

The Heritage Park is the site of the original “Morayfields” settlement which dates from 1861 and was the first European settlement in the district.

The Heritage Park is a community attraction and has taken several years to develop, costing over $3M with $1,535,062 of funds coming from the Federal Government through a funding agreement with our community partner, the Abbey Museum of Art and Archaeology. Funding is through the Community Development Grants programme, provided through the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development.

The $1,535,062 Grant is being matched by North Harbour. The Abbey Museum and North Harbour are also working in partnership and providing significant “in-kind” support through project planning, project management, post-construction operation and maintenance.

The heritage aspects of the old site are being combined with a vast expanse of parkland including pathways and tracks for use by residents and visitors, allowing everyone to enjoy our slice of Queensland history and the Caboolture River. The first stages of construction have been completed including roads and other infrastructure, picnic areas including shelters, BBQs, tables and benches and toilet facilities. Our fishing platform / canoe launch and heritage centre will be next to be completed and the Heritage Park is proposed to open in late 2019.

The Heritage Park area can be accessed on Saturday mornings at 7.00am for North Harbour parkrun. For more information and directions please click here.
