New Year’s resolutions in Catherine Park Estate

As the second decade of the 21st Century enters its final year, we start looking towards the often made – and often ignored – New Year’s resolution.

Two of the most common New Year’s resolutions are to lose weight and save money. While physical and financial health are noble pursuits, they are also often the first to be forgotten. As such, we’ve decided to help you with some ideas for fun and more attainable New Year’s resolutions that you can accomplish right here in Catherine Park Estate. Try your hand at one of the below to get your 2020 off to a cracking start.

Lose Weight, Save Money

Okay, we know what we just said, but hear us out. For many people weight loss goals mainly revolve around joining a gym. The busiest period for many gyms – new memberships and visits – is the month of January. Makes sense, right? Make resolution, start resolution, give up on resolution. Actually, statistics[1] show that it takes three months for the typical individual to quit going to the gym after signing up in January.

Thankfully, Catherine Park Estate has exactly what you need to be able to achieve both goals. With an assortment of pathways, open spaces and communal gym equipment, you not only have all the facilities you need at your doorstep, but they’re also free to use.  Even though you may still be in the ‘time-poor’ category, not having to commute to a gym at the crack of dawn just to get in a workout will save you time, not to mention money on membership fees.

Spend More Time Outdoors

Make ‘getting outdoors’ one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2020. And, getting outdoors is something the design of Catherine Park Estate encourages residents to do. Whether it’s a casual stroll along Robbins Lane on a Sunday afternoon, kicking a ball around at Catherine Park Oval after work, or simply taking your four-legged family member to Paw Park, our off-leash dog park. Or, if you just want to experience nature at its best, a leisurely walk through South Creek Preservation Area where the harmonious wildlife noises bring a calming sense of peace.

Spend More Time With Family, Friends and Neighbours

And what better way to do that than with a BBQ? During the summer months us Aussies will look for any excuse to have a BBQ. We even BBQ veggies, just so we can still have a BBQ but get our greens in as well. So long as you own a BBQ…well, not really.

If you are planning a BBQ, we invite you to take advantage of the Harrington Estates MobiQ. The MobiQ is a mobile BBQ available for hire, free of charge, to all residents of Catherine Park Estate for personal functions and events held anywhere within Catherine Park Estate or Harrington Grove, as well as in the surrounding park grounds within Harrington Park. Bookings are essential and can be made via the Catherine Park Estate sales office by calling (02) 4604 6046 or by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

DIY projects

Okay, hear us out first - DIY projects as New Year’s resolutions can be a little like gym memberships. At first, we start out all gung-ho with DIY projects, but eventually it starts to slow down to the point of stopping altogether.

If this sounds like you, we suggest perhaps breaking it down into more manageable pieces and timeframes. Give yourself a couple of months to get a simple job done, like building some shelves. Stagger the stages of the project and try to achieve some progress on the job each week to keep to your timeline.

Make it ‘The Year of YOU!’

One of the most important – yet often ignored – resolutions that we all should make is to make this year about you. What do you want to achieve this year? Want to travel more? Chase after that dream job? Start or finish your degree? Whatever it may be, you need to have something in your life that’s all about you. When you have a family it’s hard to do that, because everything is about your children, but when you forget yourself something feels like it’s missing. So, make 2020 the year of you and find one thing that’s about and for you.

We wish our residents all the best for the New Year, and if you have any questions regarding any one of our lots or home and land packages, we invite you to contact us on 02 4604 6046, or fill out our Online Enquiry Form
