We’re renewing ten playspaces across the Central Coast, unlocking the full potential of the facility by making way for improved and accessible playspaces for locals and visitors alike.

Council’s planned upgrades ensure these community assets are maintained through a renewal program with regular reviews and a programmed schedule of works to maintain, upgrade and – where necessary - remove old, vandalised, or broken equipment.

All ten playspaces have no planned removal of trees within the identified sites. These renewals have been made possible thanks to Council's forward planning with funding provided through Council's Capital Works budget, with assistance of the NSW Governments Local Small Commitments Allocation Grant Program helping us to deliver Wamberal Hall and Maidens Brush Oval Playspaces

Playspaces play an important role in our community and visitors to the area. Being a place where children can develop physical, emotional, social and cognitive skills.

Council’s 2020-2025 Playspace Strategy provides strategic direction for the development and sustainable management of playspaces on the Central Coast.
