The Ponds | A benchmark for excellence
The Ponds comprises over 4000 homes and more than 12,500 people will call the suburb home by early 2017. More than one billion dollars was invested in major infrastructure projects and housing, creating thousands of jobs to help stimulate the New South Wales economy.
Major infrastructure projects included two community hubs, a shopping centre, two playing fields, five ponds and lakes, seven neighbourhood parks, children’s playgrounds, four kilometres of cycle and walk paths, three primary schools, one high school and a public art program. Over 1.5 million trees were also planted as part of the rejuvenation program for Second Ponds Creek.
The Ponds has won 15 industry awards, including the coveted title of most advantaged suburb by the Australian Bureau of Statistics and during its peak was the fastest selling masterplanned project in Australia.
