GLADSTONE residents are invited to a free family fun day next week to celebrate the opening of a recreational park.

Lilyvale Park at Riverstone Rise, Boyne Island, is set on 3.25ha of open space and bushland.

It features walking, cycling and running tracks, turfed open spaces with goalposts, a basketball court and a playground.

Gladstone region Mayor Gail Sellers will open Lilyvale Park with a plaque unveiling on Saturday, May 24, at 11.30am.

The event will feature a range of entertainment and activities for the whole family from 10am-2pm, including demonstrations by a local basketball team and sailing association, a kicking competition, closest-to-the-pin chipping challenge, sausage sizzle, Zinc 927 live broadcast, jumping castle, bubble machine, snow cones, animal farm, builder stalls, face painting and popcorn.

There are also great prizes to be won.

Riverstone Rise project director Grant Botica said the new parkland was a welcome addition to the fast-growing community of Riverstone Rise.

"We are proud to deliver a fantastic range of amenity for our residents, including this fantastic new park, which will provide entertainment and relaxation for the whole family," he said.

"We believe it's important to build communities that offer vibrant lifestyles where our residents' key lifestyle needs are met."

It's another great milestone for Riverstone Rise, Gladstone's largest master-planned community.

Upon completion, Riverstone Rise will feature 2900 lots and be home to more than 7500 people.
