Surrounding 'The Parc' are a number of residential developments, from spacious 4 bedroom waterside residences to more modest 1 bedroom apartments, all with a view of the central gardens.
The gardens are secure and tranquil, which is a pleasant surprise, given the location on the edge of the bustling CBD.
As well as providing a chance to stretch your legs, they also allow you to pick herbs from the communal garden or grab a lemon for the evening Gin & Tonic, as the sun sets on your deck.
At one end of the gardens is a waterfall, fed by the outdoor swimming pool. Adjoining the pool is a gym, sauna and spa - all for the use of residents.
