There are plenty of reasons why we love the places we live. Whether it’s being close to friends and family, work, beautiful views or lifestyle capital like restaurants and cafes, the features and benefits of our home suburbs can often be pin-pointed to several geographical, social, cultural or infrastructural arenas.
In 2016, Domain published the Sydney Liveable Report looking at key indicators and how they relate to the desire to live there. You might think it’s easy to determine the desirability to live in a place by the price tag of a house there, however there are many aspects that can affect a resident’s quality of life.
At Gregory Hills, we are confident that we are creating a great place to live in one of Sydney’s fastest growing areas. So we have compiled a list of our key indicators to liveability.
The town centre and surrounding areas of Gregory Hills will be a hub of activity. A community Centre will be built in 2017 and handed to Council and will act as the cultural hub of the community. A public art strategy is also being implemented.
Gregory Hills is perfectly positioned with access to all levels of education including preschool, primary, secondary and tertiary institutions in close proximity.

Gregory Hills has been designed with open spaces in mind. The many local parks give plenty of room for activities and the beautiful Scenic Hills are right next door to Gregory Hills.

Maintaining the natural and native flora has been a key objective of Gregory Hills. The large gum trees that cover the playgrounds and parks are a testament to this.

It’s true, the reasons why we decide to live where we live are numerous and diverse, however we often find that our neighbours love the place we call home for the same reasons we do. Chances are yours, theirs and ours are amongst the ten listed above, that said, we’d love to hear why you think Gregory Hills is a great place to live.
