"One of the best communities"

I’ve lived in around 10 different suburbs but Marsden Park is by far the nicest - short drive to all the facilities, good traffic management as entry / exits aren’t on the main roads. Once the train station metro comes in, would be a delight.

"What a nice suburb"

Nice parks, lake, close to m7 and metro. Very close to the Norwest business park, private hospital, and great private school - St Luke’s in the area.

Very secure area with constant security roaming at night time around Newpark.

"A community where everyone knows you"

Lots of community events within Elara (before Covid), among lots of exercise trials current and planned. Coles will be a short walking distance with the other supermarkets also within marsden park at driving distance.

"Rapid developing area with lots of facilities"

Have a massive medical centre close by which closes at 10pm. Woolworths, Costco, Aldi and soon Coles all within a short drive away. Very nice suburb and fast developing. Very safe and new lake looks like it’s developing well.

Public transport includes a free peak hour shuttle to Schofields station with future metro train coming into south street.

iceee Its not too bad. In peak hour, I park at Tallawong and get the frequent metro across. Otherwise I also have the option of parking in Altrove, and catching express trains to the city from Schofields. Always find parking in either streets of Tallawong or streets of Altrove, Schofields.

Otherwise driving, breeze down the M7, M2 and Lane Cove Tunnel - traffic around harbour bridge which is normal and expected. There is a bit of traffic on Elara Blvd but its due to construction workers and its usually the other way around so when Im leaving Elara, theyre usually lined up to enter and when Im entering Elara, theyre lined up to exit.

"Deceiving suburb"

Traffic in Richmond road is horrendous! Everybody has to drive to go to train stations or wait for the bus provided by developer. Houses are built like with zero allotment, i could hear all the noise from my neighbours. Roads are too narrow. I truly regret building in here.

palf Are you still here? Has this improved since last year?

"A country town feel in a major city"

Marsden Park has a great community feel. The are lots of open green space and major retailers like IKEA and Costco are minutes drive away. The suburb is working through its fair share of public transport. You don’t have live Marsden Park once the whole community is built as it will have all the facilities.

I can easily see resembles of castle hill before the crazy development with affluent young white collar families moving into this area.

Elara is very well planned community with one of the best upcoming catholic school in the country.
