Wilton Fields Village Park Open to the Public
We are excited to see the community enjoying the recently opened Wilton Fields Village Park. The park consists of multiple lawns, a swale that stretches the park's length and a futuristic playground. The huge climbing frame stretches up 7.2 metres, with a long enclosed tunnel slide for a quick way down. Wilton Fields Village Park, located at the corner of Colosseum Drive and Wimbledon Avenue, forms part of the green link from the Regional Park through to the Adventure Park on Bridge Road. It will be an ideal spot for families to spend time together on the weekends and after school. Stay tuned for an offical opening event for the community early-2020.

Opening in Spring-2020 the Atherstone Village Local Convenience Centre will bring all your essential needs to the heart of Atherstone. The Convenience Centre, located opposite the existing Display Village, will include a local convenience supermarket, medical and health facilities, a childcare centre, swim school and café. We look forward to opening Spring-2020.

Bridge Road Landscaping Upgrade
Thank you for your patience while we upgrade the landscaping along the Bridge Road medium and roundabout, and hope you enjoy the newly refreshed planting.
