Framed with wide vistas to the Southern Alps and Port Hills, the landscape wraps itself around homes and buildings, through green playgrounds to the Avon river. Pathways run along the riverbanks, connecting you to nature and other precincts. At its centre is the Margaret Mahy Family Playground - one of the largest playgrounds in the Southern Hemisphere.
Avon Precinct is bordered by the main streets of Manchester, Madras, Kilmore and Gloucester. The existing MED building will become the central icon of the precinct providing a retail focus which will enhance the development.
The homes and buildings in the Avon Precinct will make the most of thoughtful landscaping and the wide open green spaces and will echo the character of the Avon River.
