Julia Reserve sees another win

Julia Reserve Youth Precinct

Oran Park’s Julia Reserve Youth Precinct picked up its third award since opening in March, after taking out the UDIA’s Excellence in Social and Community Infrastructure Award.

The prestigious award, part of the 2020 UDIA NSW Excellence Awards, recognises public or private sector organisations that have demonstrated leadership and innovation in delivering services and/or social infrastructure developments.

The facility is really making a name for itself, after recently being awarded the 2020 Australian Institute of Landscape Architects (AILA) National Award as well as the 2020 AILA NSW Landscape Architecture Award for Parks and Open Space.

Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli, said the facility was a joint initiative between Camden Council, Greenfields Development Company (GDC) and Landcom.

“What can I say – I am thrilled to see another award win for a very deserving facility, particularly considering is has only been open for nine short months!” Cr Fedeli said.

“But what’s better than that is seeing our community enjoy this space every day.

“From the moment it opened, Julia Reserve has become one of our most popular spaces, and for very good reason.

“The beauty of this precinct is that it really does tick so many boxes for our community. Our young families with kids can use the skate facilities, our more sporty residents can use the multi-use courts and ping pong tables, and those of us who like to kick back and relax can do so in beautiful surroundings.

“It absolutely warms my heart to have helped create a space that is so loved. I encourage all our residents to continue using the facility, while making sure you follow all COVID-19 guidelines including social distancing measures.

“I’d like to thank GDC and Landcom for working collaboratively with Council to achieve such a fantastic facility.”
