A new regional park will become a destination for families across Sydney’s south west region when it opens with a free, fun-filled party at Stockland’s Willowdale community this Sunday, November 27.

The Mayor of Campbelltown, Cr George Brticevic, will officially open the park.

A double, 40-metre flying fox, a water play area, children’s bicycle challenge area with obstacles, a cubby house, slides and kick-about areas for ball sports are among the features of the 2.9-hectare Willowdale Park at Baden Powell Avenue, Denham Court.


It also includes large areas of lawn and native trees, picnic shelters and barbecue facilities and a terraced amphitheatre.

Hundreds of people from across the region are expected to attend the free family fun day to launch the new park.

A rock climbing wall, golf putting challenge, blow-up maze, giant balloon bubbles, kite flying and roaming musicians will be among the attractions at the fun day, which will run from 12 noon to 3pm.

Life Live Get Active will be on hand to answer all your fitness questions and hold fitness sessions for adults at the party, while a bicycle technician will be in attendance to service bikes.

Gavin Tonnet, general manager of NSW Residential Communities at Stockland, said the sporting nature of the event reflected the focus on healthy, active and outdoor living at Willowdale.

“We want this party to reflect the true nature of Willowdale – and the new Willowdale Park – as a family-friendly destination for people from across Sydney’s south west,” Mr Tonnet said.

“They can bring their families to ride bikes, kick balls, play on the equipment or just have a picnic.”

Willowdale is one of the most popular new communities for home buyers in Sydney.

More than 1,600 people now live at Willowdale which, when complete, will be home to more than 3,000 families.

It is home to the innovative community hub Willowdale Community Place, where Camden Community Connections runs a calendar of events, activities, classes and workshops.

A state primary school and child care centre are proposed for the community and Coles will build the Willowdale Shopping Centre with a supermarket, Liquorland, bakery, delicatessen and up to 12 specialty stores.

Willowdale has been awarded a 6 Star Green Star – Communities rating from the Green Buildings Council of Australia. This recognises world leadership across a wide range of environmental, economic and social sustainability measures.

Mr Tonnet said everything that went into achieving the Green Star rating – including green spaces with parks and playgrounds – made Willowdale a better place to live.

“We are incredibly proud of Willowdale and Willowdale Park because of what they offer not just to our residents but also to people from across the region,” Mr Tonnet said.

Willowdale is at Denham Court in the East Leppington growth precinct, just 15km from Liverpool and with convenient access to the nearby Leppington train station and the M5 and M7 motorways.
