Each home at The New Rouse Hill is located within a three minute walk of open space. When complete, approximately 32 hectares of open space will be provided for you to enjoy, including walking and cycling trails, an all abilities playground and bbq and picnic spots.
Iron Bark Ridge Park includes bbq and seating facilities, an Environment Centre and amphitheatre. Taking learning outside, the Environment Centre can function as an open air classroom and meeting venue for local schools and community groups.
Located within the Mungerie Precinct, the Mungerie Playground is an all abilities playground specially designed for children of varying ages and abilities. A unique feature of the playground is the oversized python sculptures that snake their way through the play equipment, which includes a climbing pyramid, cubby house, sandpits and water pump.
Caddies Creek meanders through the middle of The New Rouse Hill, providing an expanse of natural bushland that will be regenerated over time. A five year bush regeneration program will use plants native to the area, and will restore this waterway to its former natural state. During the development of the project a network of walking and cycling trails and a series of bridges will connect picnic spots, open spaces and lookouts, and provide linkages throughout the community.
When complete, Mungerie Paddock will stretch across 7500m2 of green open space, connecting to Caddies Creek. As well as providing open space and grassed kick around areas, Mungerie Paddock will incorporate wetlands as part of The New Rouse Hill’s Water Sensitive Urban Design program.
Neighbourhood parks are located throughout The New Rouse Hill. Residents are already able to enjoy Magnolia Park, with Melaleuca Park to be completed in time for when the first residents of the current Melaleuca release move into their new homes.
