Champion Lakes has been designed to create a healthy and engaging neighbourhood.
It takes more than a nice house to make a place a home. It's what living there provides you in terms of community connections and amenity which really makes a home.
As a new resident of Champion Lakes, you'll be welcomed into the Champion Lakes Residents Association, an active voice for residents, run by residents, with the intention of promoting community spirit and awareness. They also organise a range of events to help you get to know your neighbours and create friendships. Past events have included Easter and Christmas celebrations on the lake foreshore and landscaped parklands, educational workshops and regular meetings in the community hub located at the estate, that can be booked for events. You are invited to get involved as much or as little as you like.
Fun free outdoor fitness classes
You're invited to make new friends at the free fun outdoor fitness classes at Joe Saunders Reserve, Dorney Esplanade (next to the playground). Sessions run for 45 minutes each week day either 9:30am or 5:15pm and include X-Training, Boxing and Yoga.
There are no joining fees and no class fees.
Visit the Live Life Get Active website to register and get involved.
Say hello to some Champion Lakes residents
Cathy Wolfenden purchased her home with husband Geoff in December 2012. She manages the Residents Association’s Facebook page while Geoff is the Treasurer and coordinates the Neighbourhood Watch Commitee.
“We were keen to become a real part of this community from the time we first moved into Champion Lakes. Being on the Residents Association has given us the opportunity to do this,” Cathy said.
“I love our community here, and also the semi-rural feel to the place. It is great to be able to take our grandchildren to play in the nature area or ride their scooters near the lake,” Cathy said.
“We had been renting and were looking to buy before we bought one of the townhouses at the estate - the whole area just had such a nice feel to it, and the community events have given us an opportunity to get to know our neighbours better.”
Residents Association member Ajith Rajagopal said he was proud to call Champion Lakes home.He said he and his wife were driving along Tonkin Highway, and noticed people watching boat racing on the lake.
“We drove in to get a better look and instantly fell in love with the estate because of the lake and the design of the houses,” Mr Rajagopal said.
“We bought our piece of land at Champion Lakes in 2012 and have ended up building our dream home here, which is a single storey 4x2.
“When we started building our home our neighbours made us so welcome. This is a young, vibrant and hugely multicultural estate which is perfect for raising a family.
“The public transport facilities are excellent, with both buses and trains nearby, and a very good school within a kilometre of the estate.
“We are proud to be part of the Residents Association, actively promoting our community to others.”
