Catherine Park Estate - like its predecessors Harrington Park and Harrington Grove - is renowned for its leafy tree-lined streets and preserved green areas.
The vision for such a green community takes a great deal of planning and investment, from the initial research into the species that will thrive in the area, as well as the planned placement of trees.
Then there is a lot of work undertaken by the landscaping staff to plant and nurture them to maturity.
Catherine Park Estate is also in the fortunate position of being able to draw from the Harrington Estates commercial-scale plant nursery which provides many of the thriving trees across all Harrington Estates communities.
