Sprout worked with Lendlease Retirement Living to establish an accessible trail through an existing community near Jervis Bay, NSW. The trail encourages a healthy and active lifestyle for elderly residents, promoting daily walks in contact with the natural environment.

Safe access to water bodies and vegetation areas is offerred via an elevated boardwalk, passing through constructed habitat areas associated with a water quality control pond, installed as part of the on site stormwater management system. 

A raised platform provides views to a thriving bird population supported by new and established terrestrial and aquatic habitats. Trees have been conserved for shade and basin batters stabilised with densely planted indigenous under storey forb, grass and shrub planting which residents have observed to support a number of local frog species.
