The photos just below are of the newer section of our estate, Bells Reach. A major feature of Bells Reach is its amazing parks in which residents can relax, exercise or just have some fun.

As mentioned above a major feature of the Bellvista/Bells Reach Estates are the large park areas and playgrounds available on both sites. The two lakes at Canavan Gracie Recreational Park near the Bellvista Market Place are man made and are surrounded by parklands, playgrounds, BBQ facilities, public amenities, pathways and garden areas. This is a popular spot for all residents.This is a photo of what is locally referred to as “The Top Lake”.
This building sits beside “The Top Lake” and is known locally as “The Land Sales Office”. The Land sales Office was where many of the original residents signed their contracts to purchase their block of land from the original developers Lensworth or later from Stockland who acquired the estate from Lensworth. This will be a wonderful acquisition for the SCRC and will make an excellent “Community Meeting Place” when handed to the community in September 2014.BeCA (Bellvista Community Association) holds its “Public Meetings” here. There are 4 BeCA Public Meetings annually.The “Community Meeting Place”.
The main park area (Canavan Gracie Recreational Park) boasts a BBQ area for use by residents and visitors. The electric BBQ’s are free and very close to the playground and tennis court. Public Toilet facilities are available as well. Quinn Park (formerly the Blue Park) at Bells Reach is an award winning play and free BBQ area for the family (Photo left). It has an exciting playground which is bound to keep youngsters entertained for hours.”Free BBQ’s, great playgrounds”.
The Bellvista Market Place has had an incredible impact on the ‘livability’ of the area. Boasting a range of services (doctor, hairdresser, Pharmacy and Bakery to name just a few) the shopping complex also includes Luke’s IGA Supermarket.”Bellvista Market Place”.
As this photo shows, people are not the only ones who think Bellvista/Bells Reach is a great place to live, relax and enjoy life! A wide array of bird life is yet another feature of our area!
BeCA was given some photos of the estate which were taken mid 2002. They make for interesting viewing. They show the area around Shannon Cres just as stage 3 was selling. The photo here is just a sample of what you can follow up on the Bellvista History page of this website. You can check the photos out HERE. I hope you enjoy them. In the photo to the left the small blue roofed building on the right hand edge of the photo is the former Land Sales Office. A two storey home now occupies that block of land.
