New Display Village for Devine's River Parks Estate

A NEW builder's display village will be the highlight of the latest land release to be built at Devine Communities' popular River Parks estate at Kelso.

Construction will start soon on River Parks' Stage 2B, which will feature 41 homesites and a new display village.

It will be the second display village at River parks. The first village at RiverParks opened in 2008 to great success and features 18 homes, allowing buyers to browse different styles and builders.

The new village in Stage 2B is due to open in November 2010 and follows on from the success of Stage 2A, which has already sold more than 50 per cent of homesites available.

Devine Queensland State Operations Manager Peter Ryan said demand for River Parks continue strong and Stage 2B was being built to give buyers even more choice.

"For those who previously missed out, Stage 2B will provide buyers with another chance to live at this very popular estate with homesites available in a variety of sizes and price points," he said.

"We're very proud to open our second display village at River Parks later this year. Our first display village received such an overwhelmingly positive response from buyers and builders that it seemed only natural that we build another one. The new villages will ensure that River Parks is at the forefront of housing design in Townsville."

He said River Parks continued to appeal to buyers in Townsville and beyond.

'Home buyers and investors are attracted to River Parks because of its close proximity to essential amenities such as parks, schools, shopping centres, the hospital and sporting facilities," he said.

"River Parks will offer its residents a fantastic lifestyle with the Ross River on their doorstep, the beach a short drive away and the hustle and bustle of the city within easy access. The Ross River Dam is also one kilometre away and boasts a huge range of recreational activities for the whole family to enjoy including fishing, boating, water skiing, bushwalking and bird watching."

Set on 72 hectares, River Parks will be home to approximately 1000 families surrounded by landscaping, promenades of trees, parklands, open spaces, walking and cycling tracks, and a proposed village and central lake including lakefront shopping, cafe and childcare centre.
