Another public open space by Lendlease Communities
Located at Lendlease’s Jordan Springs, Melaleuca Village Lake and play space opened June 4.
Arthur Ilias, Lendlease Communities General Manager NSW/ACT, said, “Jordan Springs is set to become one of Western Sydney’s most picturesque suburbs and, with Melaleuca Village Lake, we’ve created a beautiful recreation space that everyone can enjoy.”
“Jordan Springs is set to become one of Western Sydney’s most picturesque suburbs and, with Melaleuca Village Lake, we’ve created a beautiful recreation space that everyone can enjoy.” Mr Ilias said.
“This 6.5 hectare lake and play space provides a gateway between the communities of Jordan Springs and Jordan Springs East and is connected by kilometres of pedestrian and cycling paths.”
The second lake in Jordan Springs is a sustainable highlight for the area. It has been designed to protect Wianamatta Regional Park; capture water run-off and control flow during storm events; and plants in the lake beds are an integral part of a water treatment system that removes sediment and nutrients from the stormwater run-off.
Representatives from Penrith City Council and Muru Mittigar Aboriginal Cultural & Education Centre attended the opening and acknowledged National Reconciliation Week with a Smoking Ceremony, storytelling, a dance performance, Indigenous food tasting and native animal display.
Celebrating National Reconciliation Week is a key action of Lendlease’s Reconciliation Action Plan with a focus on strengthening and maintaining relationships between Lendlease’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees and other employees and building relationships with local communities.
