The Atherstone community welcomes two brand new parks
We are delighted to announce that Atherstone’s Wilton Fields Village Park and Middle Park Village Park are now officially open!
Located at the corner of Colosseum Drive and Wimbledon Avenue, Wilton Fields Village Park is ready to welcome local families for a day of fun and adventure. It features multiple lawns, a large shaded area and a futuristic playground with a 7.5-metre climbing frame and tunnel slide for the kids to explore! The park also includes swings, a nature play section, large grass oval for ball games, paths suitable for runners and scooters and a barbeque picnic shelter. Wilton Fields Village Park also forms part of the green link from the Regional Park through to Atherstone Regional Play Space, located on Bridge Road.
Middle Park Village Park, located between Reston Way and Ruislip Avenue, features a picnic setting, open grassed areas, garden beds, play equipment and a basketball hoop. It’s the perfect destination for families, with play equipment and spaces suitable for all ages.
The Regional Play Space is another exciting playground that targets kindergarten and primary school aged children with unique features such as trampolines, a flying fox, monkey bars and a waterplay area. The space is large enough to host events such as picnics, playdates and birthday parties and is an ideal meeting spot for families to catch up and spend time together.
Wilton Fields Village Park and Middle Park Village Park are the newest additions to the Atherstone Community, over a quarter of which is dedicated to open spaces, parks, gardens, waterways and hike and bike trails. On completion of the masterplan, Atherstone will also boast the region’s largest dedicated sport precinct complete with hockey fields, athletic facilities and proposed oval and tennis courts.
