The Junction’s Park Now Officially Open to the Public!
After much anticipation, construction is now complete on our brand new park!
We are excited to announce, following popular demand, the name ‘Bandicoot Park’ has been chosen and officially approved by council!
With our goal to open Bandicoot Park before the end of the year, The Junction and Fleming’s Landscapes teams have been working tirelessly to make sure that could happen. Over four months of man-hours have gone into creating this oasis for the community, and we could not be more pleased with the result.
In total, a selection of 6,902 plants have been included in the park, all largely inspired by the nearby Cranbourne Botanic Gardens. You’ll see many familiar species throughout, including the Blue Flax Lily, of which there are over 900! A total of 104 trees have also been planted, including Spotted Gum, Queensland Lacebark, Silky Oak, Coastal Banksia, Swamp Mahogany and White Cedar. Happily, we were also able to retain two large Bangalay Eucalypts. Once these beautiful new trees are established, they will provide shade and shelter for visitors, as well as vital habitat for native fauna.
We couldn’t be happier to see your new park open just in time for the school holidays. This lush oasis will be a fantastic green space for The Junction community to enjoy, the perfect spot to picnic, play and relax this summer.
