Here’s five facts you may not know about Silver Jubilee Park:
- The park has been structured to ensure there is room for less organised play to contrast the regulated sporting courts and fields
- The park has an adventure track that offers a multi-user loop of challenges
- Situated among mountainous terrain, the broader park reflects the local environment of Spring Mountain, as well as its connection to nearby urban centres
- Planting beds surrounding the activity trail showcase native floral plants which attract the birds and bees by organising them into colour groups
- Vee Design are the visionaries behind Silver Jubilee Park and are known for creating unforgettable spaces that promote connection, positive change and sustainability.
We can’t wait to celebrate this new community park with our Springfield Rise residents and the broader Ipswich community. To RSVP to the event, visit our Facebook page here.
