Samantha Riley Reserve

A vibrant new destination for community growth and wellbeing

Scroll down

Central to the Hills District community ethos is the close-knit nature of residents, their friends and family gathering for recreation and a healthy lifestyle.

A vibrant new outdoor space for promoting active, fun and healthy lifestyles in The Hills Shire is Samantha Riley Reserve. Not only a space for the community to thrive through sports and recreation, the park is a space for local flora and fauna to flourish in its natural environment, providing a dynamic backdrop for this new district hub. The masterplan aims to create an inclusive park that provides for all ages while connecting the reserve to its surrounding context of local environment by strengthening tree canopy and understorey.

Set amongst a bush setting bounded by riparian corridors and significant vegetation to the north, the new sports complex possesses unique natural character. It will provide 4 sports fields, 2 ovals, shared cycle and recreational path, amenities and a local playground, offering both active and passive recreational facilities for all. On such a site with great level variation, it has also been essential to incorporate Water Sensitive Urban Design within the project as part of the council’s stormwater strategy.

Samantha Riley Reserve is a unique recreation asset for the people of North Kellyville that will become a energetic and inclusive park for all of the community.
