All-year-round parklands

First opened in May 2011, the 24-hectare $30 million parklands have received numerous awards for outstanding urban design. These include a National Award for Excellence from the Urban Development Institute of Australia and becoming the Overall Winner at the Australian International Design Awards within its first year of public access. Springfield City has been master-planned with one-third of all land dedicated to open green space making Robelle Domain the natural pristine heart of Springfield Central. 

Technology has also played a major role in the design of SEQ’s newest urban parkland. Maha Sinnathamby AM, Chairman of Springfield City Group said combining technology with nature in shared green space had enhanced the sense of community by encouraging people to meet and interact in a relaxed and healthy way. 

Robelle Domain also incorporates artistic light columns enabling light, sound and projection events that can be programmed into infinite sequences and artistic expressions.

With seven feature towers, each nine metres in height, which define the central amphitheatre lawn and provide light and sound displays after dark – they bring the park to life by night as well as during the day. The park also boasts free wireless internet access so visitors to the park or students can just wander down from their classes and soak up the beautiful natural setting. 

Together the parklands and Orion Lagoon mark the community hub of Springfield Central, featuring a variety of events and entertainment including outdoor movie screenings, the monthly Springfield markets and a huge range of community events throughout the year! 

Robelle Domain and Orion Lagoon is the heart of the Springfield City community and the perfect place for your next family outing or restful weekend. For more information about event bookings or wireless internet at Robelle Domain, contact Ipswich City Council on (07) 3810 6666 with any enquiries!
