Inglis Park

The century old Moreton Bay figs throughout Newmarket share an iconic association with the site. Arcadia designed a landscape that allowed these trees to continue their role of mature sentinels to watch over the new community. In particular, the canopy of the original fig tree in Inglis Park provides the central space for everyone to meet under. The timber decking and landscape treatments of this communal area have been carefully designed to maintain the integrity of the tree, creating a tactile and appealing place for people to explore and engage. Featuring an extensive lawn, children’s playground, BBQ dining facilities, including a children’s picnic party zone, polished concrete tabletops, timber benches and a pergola, Inglis Park links seamlessly with and expands the adjacent food and beverage offering of the Newmarket Dining precinct.

Inglis Park has been designed to be the heart of Newmarket Randwick, taking into account how residents, locals and visitors will use the outdoor space – from quiet relaxation to fitness activities, dog-friendly areas and a great place to meet family and friends for a play or a picnic.
