Construction is set to commence on the redevelopment on Green Point’s Sun Valley Park with work expected to be completed by June.
The revamp will provide a safe, functional, inclusive regional playspace, funded by the NSW Government in association with Central Coast Council and is expected to be completed by June 2021.
Council Director Community and Recreation Services, Julie Vaughan, said the vision of the redevelopment is to produce a regional playspace that will create opportunities for play and social engagement.
“The community will benefit from upgrades to the basketball courts and carpark, as well as the construction of an inclusive regional playspace consisting of play equipment, park furniture, barbeques, drinking fountain, pathways, landscaping, fencing and a new amenity building,” Vaughan said.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said the redevelopment would encourage an active outdoor lifestyle for a wide range of ages and ability levels.
“This is exactly what the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund is designed to deliver, and I’m thrilled to see it becoming a reality,” Crouch said.
Council Administrator, Dick Persson, said this project delivers on a number of community nominated goals outlined in Council’s Community Strategic Plan.
“The community can have confidence that important projects like this have been budgeted for as part of Council’s revised Operational Plan, and they will continue to progress as Council moves towards financial stability,” Persson said.
