Park-lands & Playgrounds

Mahana Reserve, the first of the two proposed reserves nestled within Frontier Estate, stands as a beacon of sustainable urban planning. It seamlessly weaves together ecological conservation and community engagement in one location.

Our commitment to a greener future is reflected in the meticulous design and implementation of diverse strategies aimed at enhancing biodiversity and fostering a sense of community within the estate.

Biodiversity Enhancement

Converting farmlands back into a biodiverse environment was one of our biggest goals when starting the design of Frontier Estate. To achieve this, we meticulously integrated native plant species into the landscaping design of the subdivision. The innovative layering of plantings not only adds aesthetic appeal but also encourages biodiversity, creating a thriving ecosystem within the subdivision. A staggering 26,000 native plants are planned for the area, hoping to contributing to the preservation of local plant species and the population growth of the local wildlife in the area.

Stormwater Management

The large ponds within Mahana Reserve and the upcoming Waiora Reserve will serve a dual purpose as a vital component of our stormwater treatment system. These ponds will eliminate the necessity for individual stormwater features like Rain Gardens or Detention Tanks on homesites, reducing the cost of new home builds in Frontier Estate.

This effective stormwater management system was specifically designed to play a crucial role in mitigating the impact of water on our rivers. Our ponds act as natural filters, ensuring that all water entering the system undergoes thorough purification before reaching our nearby river: the Mangapiko Stream.

Recreational Amenities

Mahana Reserve goes beyond being a natural haven; it’s crafted as a vibrant recreational hub for the community. Boasting over 2km of carefully planned paths and walkways, residents can seamlessly immerse themselves in the picturesque surroundings.

The addition of a community orchard not only offers a communal space for residents to reconnect with nature but also pays homage to the historical orchard that once graced the former farmlands.

Community Engagement

This expansive parkland is more than just a green space; it’s a hub for community activities. The 2km walking and cycle track not only promotes a healthy lifestyle but also encourages a sense of community spirit. Access to the local dog park (Mahana Lane Reserve) ensures that our four-legged friends are also part of the experience.
