Napoli Park with wrougth iron design
Park has a lot to offer
by Michelle Carnovale
Set on 1.8ha, the vibrant centrepiece of the estate caters to a variety of recreational needs with picnic areas, a basketball half-court, extensive children’s playground, fitness circuit equipment, multi-use oval and walking paths.
Adding further credential to Napoli Park’s innovative design, the all-inclusive space was recently recognised at the 2012 Hume City Council Business Awards, receiving the award for the Provision of Creative Open Space.
Pask Group sales and marketing manager Marie Griggs said the developer was thrilled with the award.
“Napoli Park is pretty much the heart of the development,” Ms Griggs said.
“It’s quite unique in that we’ve responded to the heritage of the area, largely European, and reflected that in the park.”
Completed in March this year, the park features European and Australian elements, such as a wrought iron gate and trellis detail, a picnic setting within a grove of olive and lemon trees, a stone and pencil pine maze and mosaics of Australian and Italian food and Australian animals by artist Davia McMillan.
Ms Griggs said many residents buying in Providence were from Greenvale and surrounding suburbs including Tullamarine and Meadow Heights.
“The kids who have grown up in these areas now want to buy in the area themselves,” she said.
The estate is 20km from the city on Mickleham Rd, Greenvale, next to Aitken College and in front of the Greenvale Reservoir and park.
Ms Griggs said more than 300 house and land packages had been sold in Providence, with about 70 residents currently living in the estate.
