The beauty of Denman Prospect is that it’s central. So many Canberra suburbs are so similar that it can be hard to weigh up the benefits of choosing one from another. That’s not the case in Denman Prospect though; we’ve summed up the best attributes of living in Denman Prospect for both the Denmen and Denwomen – all of which will convince the kids to put down their phone and enjoy the outdoors.
One of the most exciting features of Denman Prospect is its proximity to the outdoor adventureland of Stromlo Forest Park. You’ll be able to grab your bike and cycle straight to Canberra’s most famous bike park, exploring all it has to offer for cyclists.
Being close to Stromlo, means you’re also close to Uriarra and the Cotter. An easy ten minute drive and you’ll be at some of the most picturesque places along the Murrumbidgee River; perfect for swimming, barbecuing and picnicking. In addition to the swimming spots along the Murrumbidgee, there’s also a major swimming pool complex proposed for Denman Prospect. Be spoiled for choice when taking the family out for a dip.
If cycling and swimming aren’t your idea of a good time, the endless plains of nature reserves also provide a perfect backdrop for a weekend hike, casual walk, or a cross country run on one of the running tracks. There’s also an abundance of native animals that call the surrounding nature reserves home, giving you and your family opportunity to see some wildlife.
For something a little more low-key, Denman Prospect nearby all the biggest shopping and social hubs in Canberra. Planned for the development is the Denman Village Shopping Centre with a supermarket, a hairdresser for pampering, professional services, childcare centre, chemist and a café for coffee catchups. This will make your everyday life much easier with the ability to quickly duck down to the local and grab everything you need at a one-stop-spot. As well as this, Denman Prospects central location means it’s just a short drive to Cooleman Court, the Canberra Centre, Westfield Belconnen and Woden.
