Cities, towns, neighbourhoods: Nelson's Ridge
Nelson’s Ridge is a masterplanned mixed use development in Western Sydney. The residential parts of the development are well-linked to neighbourhood services and facilities, including local shops and community services such as child care and a community centre within walking distance. Walking and cycling paths also link houses to local public transport, providing access to bus routes along Greystanes Road.
The development is also notable for the large amount and variety of high quality public open space that is provided, in close proximity to dwellings, including many active and passive recreation, play and sporting areas and facilities.
The design of this development, as a linked, mixed use neighbourhood, rather than simply as a residential area, will encourage active living by making it easy for residents of all ages to access and use the commercial, community and recreational services and facilities that are close to their homes by walking or cycling. It also enables them to access other, regional destinations by bus.
