Should you work in Rowville, there may be no need to drive at all. Bankside’s network of walking and cycling paths links directly with those of the wider community, providing seamless access to business and industrial parks, and other commercial centres. Many of the area’s schools are also close by, along with a wide range of quality local shopping choices.
Some of the suburb’s best sporting facilities are even closer to home. Delivered by Pask, the Bankside multisport complex will accommodate two soccer pitches, plus a pavilion and car park. Nearby, and equally handy, Bankside’s mixed-use precinct will be designed to house a selection of retailers and neighbourhood services.
A beautiful, natural environment to enjoy each day.
Restored and revitalised by Pask, the gentle waters of Corhanwarrabul Creek will bring life to a dozen wetland habitats across Bankside, and help many species of local flora and fauna to thrive anew. Bordered by green open spaces and accompanied along its 1.7 kilometre length by a network of landscaped pathways, boardwalks, bridges and lookouts, this picturesque natural environment is yours to experience and enjoy all year round.
It’s also the gateway to Bankside’s historic neighbour—Stamford Park—home to one of the region’s last remaining 19th century country homesteads, and the focus of a multimillion dollar rejuvenation by the City of Knox. Once complete, the new look Stamford Park will complement Bankside’s lush natural settings with a further 45 hectares of wetlands, habitats and open space. Family friendly by design, its many attractions include a delightful village green and recreation lake, playground and adventure play zone, lakeside boardwalk and kiosk, and a community permaculture garden.
