New or upgraded playspaces for at least eight locations

Ross Park at Avoca Beach is one of those to be upgraded this financial year

Playspaces at Kariong, Saratoga, North Avoca, East Gosford and Avoca will be established or upgraded this financial year as Central Coast Council continues to implement its Playspace Strategy.

The recent school holidays saw many locals enjoying new play equipment and facilities at the recently established Sun Valley Park at Green Point and Council intends to keep the ball rolling.

Director Community and Recreation Services, Julie Vaughan, said Council’s playspaces have provided a positive outlet for children right across the Coast.

“Our public playspaces, outdoor fitness equipment and skate parks promote healthy living, active lifestyles and improve the quality of life for our community,” she said.

“For this reason we will continue to deliver public facilities, amenities, signage and playspaces in line with our annual Operational Plan and what our community has told us is important to them.”

Administrator, Rik Hart, said the completion of new or upgraded community assets was something that Council was striving to continue.

“The continued delivery of playspace infrastructure is a result of community feedback as part of Council’s Central Coast Playspace Strategy and is important to ensure fit-for-purpose facilities that support the needs and growth of our community,” Hart said.

In the pipeline for delivery this financial year is a new playspace at Kariong Recreation Area funded
by Council.

Upgrades funded by the Federal Government will take place at Hylton Moore Oval, East Gosford, Jirramba Reserve, Saratoga, Palm Gully Park, North Avoca, and Ross Park, Avoca Beach.

Playspaces at Pretty Beach, Mardi and Woy Woy are also on the list.
