The unique green-spaces of Warrendine Court
The entrance to Warrendine Court from Franklin Road leads to a tree-lined driveway with a visitors' parking bay. The magnificent trees were planted as seed-stock in 1979 by NSW Forestry who assisted with the landscaping under the original BODC commission for development.
The west village is skirted by shady lawn areas. At the centre is a circular lawn area known as "Circle Green". We're still working on images here.
The major green-space asset of Warrendine Court is the so-called "Village Green", an expansive, tree-studded lawn area at the heart of the north, south and east villages. The original plans for Warrendine Court included a children's playground, and central barbeque area where people would meet and mingle. Although these facilities are long-gone due to rising insurance and maintenance expenses, the Village Green still serves its intended purposes. Children can meet up together and play freely, discretely supervised by adults from cleverly-considered indoor vantage points. Residents gather informally in fine weather, and several times a year there are major community festivities, such as Christmas parties with a visiting Santa, and outdoor Easter Egg Hunts involving singletons, couples and families - from toddlers to great-grandparents.
