Full-time has been called on the construction of Cunningham Park in the north of the Gregory Hills community, with the park officially unveiled on Saturday March 9, 2019.
Gregory Hills, is built on a design dedicated to promoting community and healthy living. Gregory Hills encourages these important factors via its 10 parks and play areas, of which Cunningham Park is the latest addition.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony to unveil Cunningham Park was attended by Mayor of Camden Peter Sidgreaves, as well as representatives of the original land owners, Marist Brothers, Dart West Developments and Macarthur Football Association.
Cunningham Park is the epitome of outdoor health and recreation and features:
- Two full-sized football fields;
- Cricket pitch;
- Training nets;
- Two full-sized basketball courts;
- Four full-sized netball courts; and
- Fully equipped outdoor gym.
These brand-new sporting facilities are overseen by a modern, fully-functional amenities complex available for use by local sporting clubs and community organisations.
Our field of dreams
At the launch event, Dart West Developments General Manager David Taylor noted that the provision of parks and amenities in which families could enjoy the outdoors and engage with their community was a key decision when planning Gregory Hills.
“In a master planned community like Gregory Hills, it’s important to have ample amenities for families of all ages to get outdoors and enjoy their community,” Taylor said.
“Cunningham Park will be home to many sporting teams young and old. These essential pieces of infrastructure are what make a community come together as a whole and really hum together.”
As time goes on, Cunningham Park will be a hub of activity throughout the week, and especially on the weekend. The sight of various codes playing at once, the sounds of laughter and cheering, not to mention the smell of sausage sizzles being cooked, will be a welcome addition to the community sense and feel of Gregory Hills.
What’s in a name?
Cunningham Park is named after Br Clarence Cunningham, a Marist Brother and Principal of St Gregory’s College, John Therry and Mount Carmel high schools.
In another milestone for Gregory Hills, Cunningham Park was delivered by Dart West Developments as part of the Gregory Hills Voluntary Planning Agreement with Camden Council, which will own and manage the park.
Dart West Developments thanks everyone who was able to attend the ribbon cutting ceremony. We look forward to residents being able to enjoy the facilities at Cunningham Park.
