Families cement their roots to mark developer’s milestone

The trees were planted in the new Hilltop Park, with 10 families taking part in the ceremony.
Each family also had a plaque with their name placed with their tree.

"This involves embracing our connection to the natural environment, and with more than 10
hectares of parkland right on the doorstep of Ecco Ripley, we thought what better place to
connect with nature than at the soon-to-be-launched Hilltop Park," he said.

Ripley to date, and our green community will continue to thrive as time goes on.
