A brand new Australiana-themed park is set to open in Autumn 2023 and will provide the perfect place for people of all ages to meet, explore and play.

Blackadder Creek Park is currently under construction in Peet’s Movida Estate and will showcase our native landscape, featuring an Australian animal-themed playground including the centrepiece, a 9m tall koala play tower.

“A priority at Peet is to create spaces which allow residents to connect with others and explore the natural surroundings of their community. Blackadder Creek Park’s unique offerings are an exciting addition to Movida Estate and provide residents with the opportunity for social interaction and to foster important relationships,” said Peet Managing Director and CEO Brendan Gore.

Blackadder Creek Park will provide something for everyone, with five hectares of open space offering a range of amenities, with basketball and netball facilities are already open to the public.

Once complete, the upgrades next year will include the koala play tower, a flying fox, an enclosed toddler play area, nature play spaces, BBQ facilities, shaded picnic areas, walking trails and a turf kickabout.

Nick Zulberti from Movida Estate’s Landscape Architect’s LD Total stated that social interaction was a key factor in designing the park to offer a range of play activities for kids of all ages: “The park was designed with a subtle nod to iconic Australian landscapes such as mangroves, wetlands and salt lakes with the colour and texture of these landscapes referenced in material and colour choices.

“The playground sits adjacent to Blackadder Creek and a large stand of existing trees have been retained to provide the backdrop to the playground, and a basketball court on the northern side of the creek,” said Mr Zulberti.
