New park launch lights up night sky
Date: 09 March 2020
Ripley locals were left mesmerised following a laser light and hologram show at Ecco Ripley, after celebrating the launch of the community’s newest parkland, Spear Lily Park, and Ecco Ripley’s latest land release.
More than 500 people attended the much-anticipated park launch, which also featured food trucks and a screening of The Lion King under the stars.
With panoramic views of the region out to Flinders Peak, Spear Lily Park features more than 21,000 native trees, shrubs and ground coverings, and is the latest of four major parklands to open to the public in Ecco Ripley.
Sekisui House Queensland State Sales Manager, Scott Blaney, said the park also incorporated several cultural heritage elements.
“In recognition of the site’s Indigenous history, we have integrated a series of sandstone carvings, as well as Indigenous way-finding totem poles and a bush tucker trail for the community to enjoy,” Mr Blaney said.
“The name of the park itself pays homage to the Spear Lily, a native plant commonly used as a food source for Indigenous Australians, and a plant that is featured significantly throughout the park.”
The launch of Spear Lily Park coincides with the fourth land release in Ecco Ripley’s Lighthaven neighbourhood, as announced to the community on Friday evening.
Fourteen land lots and one duplex lot are now available in Lighthaven, measuring between 300 and 533 square metres, and with an average price point of $198,786. House and land packages are also on offer, with construction soon to commence on 13 ready built homes.
“These premium, hilltop lots are just a short stroll to the brand-new Spear Lily Park and Ripley Town Centre, most with scenic views of Flinders Peak and natural bushland,” Mr Blaney said.
“Land registration is imminent, so there’s never been a better time to build your future home, with house and land packages starting from just $369,500.”
