Introducing Springfield Lakes’ newest park!
The Springfield Lakes Team is excited to announce a new park has now opened in The Peninsula, Terry & Frances Slaughter Park. Located lakeside on Discovery Lake, the new park, named after local community champions Terry and Frances Slaughter, will offer residents a fantastic community space to gather with family and friends, to have a BBQ, play on the nautical themed playground or relax under the shady trees with a book. Given its proximity to the lake, a nautical theme was chosen for the design. The park is filled with fun and adventure activities including a large ship with climbing crows nest and look out deck, jungle swing rope, a toddler swing, walking tight-rope and a fun super slide, all being protected by shade sails and natural shade from the tall trees.
Other features in the park include electrical BBQs, free wi-fi, kick about space, shade shelters with tables and benches, water fountains and toilets.
Local community champion, Mr Slaughter and his family have played an active role in the Springfield Lakes community ever since moving to Springfield Lakes 15 years ago. Raising money for charities through a variety of events, Mr Slaughter was recognised by Councillor Sheila Ireland (Division 9) as an obvious choice for the honour.
