Exciting news is on the horizon for the residents of Meridian Central! The development of Stage 25 Park is progressing splendidly, bringing us closer to a stunning recreational space right in the heart of our community. In this blog post, we will provide you with an overview of the construction progress and what you can expect from this eagerly anticipated park.
Footpath and Concrete Works:
We are thrilled to report that the footpath and concrete works in the Stage 25 Park are nearly complete. These essential components of the park’s infrastructure have been meticulously laid out to ensure easy access and safe pathways for park visitors. The attention to detail in this aspect of the construction reflects our commitment to providing a well-designed and functional recreational space for everyone to enjoy.
Kickabout Area and Garden Beds:
The kickabout area is now taking shape, adding an exciting feature to the park. Set to be completed in early to mid-June, this space will be perfect for sports enthusiasts of all ages to engage in friendly matches and recreational activities. Alongside this, the planting of garden beds has already commenced, adding a touch of natural beauty and enhancing the park’s visual appeal.
The installation of the public bathroom facilities is now complete, ensuring the convenience and comfort of park visitors. A key consideration in the park’s design was to provide essential amenities that cater to the needs of our community members, and we are delighted to have achieved this goal.
Play Areas and Safety Surfaces:
To ensure the safety of children using the play areas, rubber and mulch safety surfaces will be installed in early June. These surfaces are designed to minimize the risk of injuries, allowing children to have fun and play freely. This additional safety measure is an essential aspect of our commitment to creating a welcoming and secure environment for families.
Furniture and Amenities:
Beginning in mid to late June, the installation of furniture and amenities will commence, transforming the park into a welcoming and enjoyable space for all. Barbecues, lighting fixtures, seating arrangements, picnic benches, fountains, and bike racks will be strategically placed throughout the park, providing various options for relaxation, recreation, and socializing.
In July, the park will partially open while the grass is given time to establish. Depending on weather conditions and the timing of the seed, the lawn may be usable during this period.
The project team is working closely with the landscape contractor to expedite the grass establishment process, ensuring that the park can be enjoyed as soon as possible.
Courts and Final Touches:
The courts in Meridian Central’s Park are set to open in July with temporary line marking. However, to ensure optimal conditions, the courts will be closed in September for final treatments, including the application of plexipave and line markings. These finishing touches will breathe life into the courts, creating an ideal space for sports enthusiasts to showcase their skills.
As the construction of the Stage 25 Park at Meridian Central progresses, we are filled with excitement for the completed project. This recreational space promises to be a wonderful addition to our community, providing a haven for leisure, recreation, and social gatherings. Stay tuned for more updates as we approach the grand opening, and we look forward to welcoming you to this remarkable addition to our neighbourhood.
