VERDANT DRIVE PARK & WETLANDS – Stage 15 As the names suggest, this Park and adjoining Wetlands will be a green haven, embracing natural play elements and providing plenty of opportunities for little kids to discover and learn. At this park you can follow the journey of some of our wild life, including frogs, fish, turtles and birds. Explore the river bed for tadpoles, seek out the fish swimming in the reeds, hang out in the nest with the eggs, or watch the real wild life from the viewing platform, overlooking the wetlands. The play area features a slide, swings and a climbing net and some musical elements, as well as a shelter and picnic area. Landscaping of the Park and the Wetlands is due to commence September 2019. SUMMIT BUSINESS PARK – WETLANDS Our adjoining development, Summit Business Park, provides our Meridian residents with additional amenity to enjoy, including a fantastic 6ha wetland fronting onto Thompsons Road. BPG Civil will complete the construction of these extensive wetlands in February. The landscaping tender has been awarded and planting is scheduled to commence in April 2019. SUMMIT PARK Located at the intersection of Newgrange Blvd (west) and Matterhorn Drive (Summit Business Park), Summit Park has been designed with the Meridian residents, our local businesses and their employees in mind. The park features an outdoor gym, half basketball court, and small play area for kids, including a slide, swing, inground trampolines. The main feature of this park is the shelter, which is designed for communal dinning, to cater for those larger family gatherings, or a lunchtime office BBQ. But, if you are wanting some down time, you can seek out a sun lounge or relax in one of the seating nodes, located away from the activity on the main boulevard.
