Nearly 100 Tarneit residents celebrated the opening of a new park with the Mother’s Day picnic.

The park, which is Mantis Circuit along Davis Creek in Stockland’s Grand Central estate, has a playground, open green space, seating and undercover areas.

Mums were gifted free picnic packs including rugs, snacks and fresh coffee, and took part in a series of fun lawn games with their families.

Stockland development director Jackie Kent said it was fitting to open the park on Mother’s Day.

“Parks are important place for families and community members to connect, and we know the parks in our Stockland communities are a destination for families, especially parents, carers and grandparents to come together and enjoy the outdoors,” Ms Kent said.

“The Mother’s Day picnic was a wonderful opportunity for our residents and the community to say thanks to the women in our lives.”
