Parks and open space

Bloomdale’s carefully designed masterplan includes over 13 ha of wetlands, 40kms of shared walking paths and bike tracks and 4ha of open space, including six community parks.

Extensive parks and open spaces are linked by routes shaded by native trees and shrubs, providing comfort along the footpaths and streets. The Diggers Rest Precinct Structure Plan (PSP) provides further guidelines regarding the parks and open space in and around Bloomdale and the wider Diggers Rest area to ensure contemporary open space and consideration for both biodiversity and natural systems.
