The NSW Government’s $10 million transformation of Leagues Club Park in Gosford is set for completion within weeks, with the community invited to open the playspace on Saturday, 27 February.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said that – much like Leagues Club Park itself – the community event would showcase the region, its people and its history.
“The construction of Leagues Club Park has been underway for the past 12 months including right throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and in just a week’s time, this exciting playspace will be open and accessible to everyone,” Mr Crouch said.
“The last 12 months has demonstrated the importance of open public space and to be able to deliver more than 20,000 square metres of it in the centre of the Central Coast’s capital is a fantastic result for our region.”
Mr Crouch said the free community event on Saturday, 27 February would feature musical presentations by local artists, Aboriginal cultural performances and workshops, food trucks, a discovery trail, face painting and a reptile show.
“Leagues Club Park is a place for locals to be proud of, and what better way to show what the Central Coast is capable of by kicking it off with an event that exhibits local talent, handicrafts, food and drink,” Mr Crouch said.
“This event will also be an opportunity to learn about our region’s culture and history, with performances and workshops by members of the local Aboriginal community and a discovery trail that leads participants through a tour of the park’s significant features.”
The finishing touches are now underway at the Leagues Club Park site, with the remaining plants going in, play equipment undergoing final safety checks and the tidal terrace being put through its paces in a variety of weather conditions.
The free community event at Leagues Club Park will be held from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, 27 February. For more information, go to: www.facebook.com/events/267667448044625.
