The Logan-Beaudesert region,Queensland’s first home buyer hotspot, welcomed a new park over the weekend, with around 300 community members attending the official opening of Flagstone’s Vista Park in celebration of Neighbour Day.
The new park, developed by Australian property developer Peet Limited, features a flying fox, half basketball court and expansive green space for the growing Flagstone community. It comes as data reveals that the Logan-Beaudesert region was home to 537 First Home Owner Grant payments last month, the highest number of approved applications in the state.
To encourage connection among the region’s growing community and celebrate the opening of the new park, Peet hosted a launch event that coincided with Neighbour Day, a nation-wide initiative designed to encourage people to connect with their neighbours. Throughout the afternoon, local residents enjoyed live music, community games, delicious snow cones, a food trucks and snow cones and Flagstone’s newest amenity, Vista Park.
Flagstone Project Director, Troy Thompson, said the event demonstrated Peet’s long-term vision for Flagstone to be the home of a close-knit community in one of South-East Queensland’s fastest growing corridors.
“Today we’re celebrating both the launch of the new Vista Park and Neighbour Day, which highlights what this park means to our community here in Flagstone. We could not think of a day more fitting to invite Flagstonians down to spend time together and make new friends, all while enjoying the new amenity that is ready just in time for school holidays,” Thompson said.
“Flagstone is one of the fastest growing areas in one of the fastest growing regions in Queensland. Due to this, we’re committed to ensuring the continued development of amenities like Vista Park, as they’re a great place for residents to gather in the spirit of community whether they’re new to the area or they’ve called the region home for several years.”
Julie Gislingham, a resident of Flagstone who lives a street away from the new park, said the park launch event was just one example of the many opportunities Flagstone offers for the community to get together and connect.
“Since deciding to call Flagstone home, I’ve been welcomed with open arms. Now when my granddaughter visits on weekends, we can visit the new park and enjoy our neighborhood, and there is always someone who says ‘hello’ and makes us feel the sense of belonging that you really want in a community.”
The Vista Park opening was attended by Deputy Mayor Cr Natalie Willcocks and State Member for Jordan Charis Mullen, who welcomed the facility as an important asset for the region’s growing community.
Deputy Mayor Cr Natalie Willcocks said the event was a reminder of the importance of community.
“Yesterday’s event was a great reminder of the importance of getting outside, saying hello to your neighbours and connecting with your community. The new Vista Park gives the Flagstone and wider Logan community a place to gather and enjoy each other’s company in the great outdoors,” she said.
State Member for Jordan Charis Mullen said the park was an important facility for local families.
“The Vista Park launch was a terrific event, attended by the young and young at heart. It’s important that our local kids and growing families have access to a quality park where they can meet their neighbours, play and have fun,” she said.
