Oakleigh Park caters for the whole community
The Oakleigh Park at Eden’s Crossing is a colourful, action packed park with abundant shade that caters for the whole family.
The park was named after an early Redbank Plains resident Daniel Jones who built a home nearby called Oakleigh, but his brother purchased the property and lived there until his death in 1932.
Oakleigh Park has been designed as a meeting place for the emerging community of Eden’s Crossing and a focal point for active play, games as well as passive social interaction. One of the key design objectives was to provide extensive shade through fixed structures, shade cloth sails and advanced trees to cater for large and small group interactions.
The park has been positioned at the crest of a hill on Sunbird Drive to take advantage of surrounding views to the north and east and also enjoys regular afternoon breezes. There are strong pedestrian and bike link connections to existing and future facilities such as Six Mile Creek pathway network and Fernbrooke State School. A key driver for the design of this park was to provide a wide range of recreation opportunities catering for multiple age groups with a focus on active play and fitness. The outdoor obstacles and fitness equipment are laid out to create multiple circuits and opportunities for games, time trials, fun races and includes a 50m sprint track.
The custom designed obstacle course encourages parents to get moving while their kids get playing.From start to finish there are exercises that are sure to get the heart rate up such as over and under bars, stepping pods, balance beam, monkey bars and more. There is also multi-use games area which is home to goals, boasting, running and laughter as children and families battle it out in basketball or soccer.
The ultimate goal was to provide the community a park with a focus on fitness and fun, which can be enjoyed by the whole family.
Oakleigh Park is located within Eden’s Crossing estate in Redbank Plains on the corner of Fernbrooke Boulevard and Sunbird Drive
