Design

Its design was based on the Radburn town planning principle where houses were to face common parkland, with the suburb's streets servicing garages situated at the rear of the houses. The design failed in its application however as home owners built fences around the "park side" of their blocks, effectively screening the houses away from the common parkland, creating long narrow fenced walkways with poor lighting and no neighbourhood surveillance. However the network of pathways ensures that it is possible to walk from any point in the suburb to any other without directly crossing a road, pedestrian bridges being used to cross the few major streets within the suburb.
