Orchard Hills North will be a residential community set amongst rolling hills in the rich natural landscape of Western Sydney and offering panoramic views to the Blue Mountains and surrounding areas.
The open space strategy includes recommendations for the distribution and facilities of passive and active spaces, play spaces, sportsfields and an active transport network within the Master Plan area. The plan also looks at furniture, public art and street tree planting recommendations that maximise tree canopy coverage.
A key consideration was the active transport loop (a 5km network of active linear space that connects key areas of the site and provides access to surrounding landmarks). This key feature of the development will bring significant health and recreation benefits and better connect the community to open spaces.
