The centrepiece of our community is the amazing linear park, which forms a natural connection between all our green spaces, the neighbourhoods, amenities, sports, facilities and our buzzing town centre. Stretching the length of 10 footy fields across Harmony, it’s a series of interconnecting parks, each with their own facilities and spaces you can use for kick-abouts and gatherings to remember; an oasis of landscaped greenery that’s designed to bring people and places closer together.
All of the parks are linked by walking and cycling paths that provide 60 kilometres of scenic landscape while you enjoy your daily exercise. No matter where you choose to live in Harmony, you’ll never be more than 500 metres from a park.
To live in Harmony is to be wrapped in the arms of nature. Surrounded by beautiful hinterland and reserves, we’ve created a grand network of parklands and green spaces that thread through and connect the entire community.
We’ve made sure that getting around Harmony is a walk in the park. Whether you want to take a stroll to the town centre, run to your favourite spot in Palmview Conservation Park or the magnificent Mooloolah River National Park your set the pace. No matter whether you stroll, jog or love to cycle, there’s every reason to leave the car at home.
