We love our waterways and we are committed to improving the recreational infrastructure on the Central Coast for all to enjoy.

Construction work is underway to upgrade the Koolewong Foreshore carpark to increase the usage capacity (with specific car and trailer parking) and improve safety for the community and visitors to our region.

During construction the boating facilities, including boat ramp and floating pontoon will remain open and accessible, however there will be changes to traffic flow in the area.  Both entry and exit will be through the southern access entry with limited turning space and access to the sailing pontoon ramp. Please use caution and adhere to all onsite signage.

Construction commenced Monday 3 February 2020 and is anticipated to be complete by the end of April 2020 (weather permitting).

The project is jointly funded by Central Coast Council and the NSW Government’s Boating Now Program.

This project follows the upgrade of Koolewong’s recreational boating infrastructure and southern foreshore area in 2018.

FAQ:  Why have trees been removed from the site of the Koolewong carpark upgrade?

Council is currently undergoing Stage 2 works to upgrade the Koolewong Foreshore carpark to support the boating facilities constructed in 2018. The works will increase the parking capacity for both car and boat trailers and improve the safety of our community and visitors.

As part of the works, which involves widening the existing carpark, a number of trees lining the existing carpark were removed to ensure the carpark design meets Australian Standards and achieves optimal functional performance for users.

For every one tree that was cut-down, Council will replant two new trees, of suitable species native to the area, away from power lines and in the adjacent Koolewong Foreshore Reserve.
