Parks and Recreation



When you drive across the limestone bridge and enter Blakes Crossing, you’ll find yourself in a green, shady retreat with a strong sense of community.


Open spaces

Parks, walking trails, a creek and landscaped streets in this leafy community provide a refreshing escape from the bustle of daily life.

With the new 1.5-hectare park now open, and the existing parks already in use throughout the community, you’ll always have somewhere to kick the footy, relax or enjoy a barbecue with family and friends.

The already opened Pooch Park has been a great success for residents’ four-legged friends, and there is a network of hike and bike trails winding through the community.
