Pelican Park playspace upgrades commence

Published On

Pelican Park Playground is set to be enjoyed for generations of families to come as construction begins on a new and improved playspace.

The upgrade to the playspace will be completed thanks to a $100,000 commitment by the NSW Government under the Local Small Commitments Allocation Program in partnership with Central Coast Council, which is also contributing almost $100,000 to the project.

Community consultation guided the design of the upgraded Pelican Park playspace, with the design including both nature-play and pirate-themed play concept designs. This will see traditional play equipment including shade infrastructure, swing sets, slides and a climbing structure and the nature play area with rope traverse and balance beams.

Once construction is completed the neighbouring Anderson Park will be decommissioned to be relocated and repurposed to Spencer to provide a playspace solution for that community.

Council reminds visitors to the area that there will be no access to the playspace while construction is underway.

The upgrade of Pelican Park is being completed under the Local Small Commitments Allocation Program (LSCA). Projects funded under this NSW Government program will help strengthen communities and provide improvements at a local level, making NSW an even better place to live. 

The LSCA Program is a $37.2 million grants program, managed by the NSW Government, that will deliver $400,000 to each of the 93 NSW electorates, providing benefits to local communities and councils through a range of investments tailored to local needs.
