Autumn at Milns Park

Wednesday, May 20, 2020

The scenery at Milns Park is always stunning. With existing mature trees dotted throughout the subdivision Autumn in particular is simply divine. With greens, yellows, rustic red and evergreen pines it sure makes the daily walk a pleasant one! 

Playground Features

Friday, May 15, 2020

Our playground is so cutting edge, it even features on playgroundcentre.com !

"Halswell, less than 10-minutes’ drive to the Christchurch CBD, is a leafy suburb that’s known for its friendly neighbourhood atmosphere and community spirit. These factors were front and centre when we worked with landscape architects, Xteriorscapes, to build a new playground in Halswell’s newest residential estate, Milns Park.

The goal was to create a welcoming space where families and neighbours could come together to relax, unwind and play, and a whole new generation of kids could have heaps of good old-fashioned fun!

Designed for children of all ages, stages and abilities, the playground [at Milns Park] includes a combination of individual swings as well as a basket-style swing that allows an adult and child or multiple children to swing together. And with a modern seesaw, more towers, more slides and not one, but two climbing structures, Milns Park is a place where the community’s kids will want to stay and play, and return to."

What Our Residents Have to Say

Thursday, November 28, 2019

"We are finally building our home [at Milns Park] and are enjoying the process of seeing our home take shape. Too often the hard work that has gone in behind the scenes to make the division a reality goes un acknowledged.
Elena and I would like to say thanks, for the thought planning and determination to make Milns Park a reality. Looking at how long the application has been going for I’m sure yourself and the other shareholders will be feeling pretty good having achieved this stage of development.
We enjoy the little things, the way the spring bubbles through the rock the bridges and bird life that has made it their preferred home. Our little dog Spencer has given his approval too, he likes his walks around sniffing every second flax bush. I’m sure as the stages progress other fun aspects will be added. We wish you all the best with your development of the later stages, and look forward to being part of the Milns Park community."

FENCING WELL UNDER AWAY

Monday, July 15, 2019

Lot Signs Are In

Tuesday, June 4, 2019

Modeled by the adorable Mini and Cecil, the Milns Park lot signs are in. With help from Gemma at Phoenix PDP and husband Wade from Reliance Building, the lot signs were put in over the long weekend making it easier for you and your family to fully picture your section. 

Dunbars Waterway

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

With thanks to Xteriorscapes the transformation of Dunbar's waterway is nearing completion at Milns Park. Once a typical box drain through paddocks, Dunbar's waterway is now a naturalised waterway with footpaths, terraces, native riparian planting and bridges.

Autumn Has Arrived

Friday, May 17, 2019

Looking around Milns Park it is evident that Autumn has arrived. The well established Oak trees that line along Milns road are looking simply radiant with its burgundy tones.  A fun fact to note, the fence posts you see under these trees are actually from the old Lyttelton Port and are used through out the subdivision, as not only fencing, but ground works for our pedestrian footbridge bridge. 

Our Vision

Friday, May 10, 2019

To give you an idea of our vision, we've contracted Stantiall's Studios to give an artist impression over looking the waterway with sections 104, 103 and 102 off to the right. 

First look playground

Friday, April 12, 2019

We earlier spoke about the playground plans that have been approved by the City Council and now, we can give you a sneak peak on what the play equipment will look like. Encompassing the 'natural look' and nestled in semi mature oak trees the playground at Milns Park blends into the serenity quite nicely.  

Paving the way

Wednesday, April 10, 2019

The roads in Milns Park are being paved, the footpaths sealed, beautiful LED lamps being installed and the playground, just moments away from being put in. 

 

PLAYGROUND SIGN OFF

Tuesday, March 26, 2019

We've had the final sign off from the City Council for our playground! Our modern playground, which is nestled off Milns Road, is encompassed by existing trees and will be made in a natural structure. When complete the playground will feature a half basketball court, tube slide, swings and see-saw, and of course, no modern playground wouldn't be complete without a scooter track! 

First Arrivals!

Friday, November 2, 2018

The first residents appear to have moved in, this family have made the fabulous new waterway their own. Although the majority of rock work has been finished, there is still one special feature to be installed.

Footpaths on the way...

Friday, November 2, 2018

Great progress on site, footpath preparation is going well, the earthworks are nearly complete, everything is coming together, including the weather.

Progress

Friday, November 2, 2018

The basalt walls at the Milns Road entrance are progressing well and starting to look fabulous, Philip, the Stonemason has been working through some questionable weather to keep this on time. The whole site is starting to take shape, the curb and channel is complete with the road seal not far away.
