The Minister for Planning and Housing was in Gosford today to unveil plans for a $10 million transformation of Leagues Club Field into a nature-inspired space with water play and sensory experiences for all ages.
Releasing the design for community comment, Anthony Roberts hailed the concept as yet another watershed moment in the revitalisation of Gosford as the Central Coast capital.
“There’s a strong focus on ‘wild play’ areas, where kids can splash around, get their hands dirty and explore a natural bushland setting.
“The centrepiece of the park will be a community hub, modelled on a Bungul (dancing) ground, designed in close collaboration with the Darkinjung Local Aboriginal Land Council (Darkinjung),” Minister Roberts said.
Consultation is ongoing with Central Coast Council and stakeholders in the preparation of the detailed design. This follows initial engagement with the community earlier this year, which sought to understand how people wanted to see the 2.4ha of public space used.
Community comment is now open until March 15.
