Nature on
your doorstep


Parkside surrounds an impressive 8-hectare nature park. As well as the luxury of having a natural asset on your doorstep, the park adds to your outdoor living space with trails, playgrounds and boundless areas to explore.

Nature parks are the heart of every great city and residential estate. Whether it be Central Park in New York City or Sydney’s very own Hyde Park, a place to escape the rush of the modern world and immerse yourself in nature has been proven to have a positive effect on your mental and physical wellbeing.

Parkside’s generous parklands will become your home away from home. A place to picnic with family and friends on the weekends, the escape your children look forward to after a day at school and the perfect spot to exercise in the fresh air.

Aside from the benefits of having a beautiful 8-hectare nature park on your doorstep, at Parkside, you’re also just minutes from other fantastic parks dotted around the Illawarra. Here are three that are within easy reach.

William Beach Reserve

Positioned within a horseshoe bend of Mullett Creek and with the Grange Golf Course on the opposite shore, this reserve not only has a kids’ contemporary playground, but locals will tell you it’s a great place to launch a canoe. The reserve was named for world sculling champion Bill Beach who lived most of his life in the Dapto district.
