The overall design proposes an environmentally sensitive site response in tandem with offering the local community with a vast variety of community recreational opportunities. Common planting schemes, pavement treatments and distinctive landscape materials will enhance way finding and help to create a distinctive and distinguishable character for the proposed development. Each aspect of the open space areas within the development will come together to create a holistic community structure. The landscape environment will assist in providing an identity and focal point for social interaction for each aspect of the development. This collectively provides a network of outdoor passive and active recreational spaces to suit all ages and user groups by providing appropriate spatial separation, visual softening and accessibility. Depending on its designated function within the network, additional embellishments may be provided such as BBQ facilities, playground equipment, artwork, fitness equipment, toilets, dog off leash areas and community gardens.
