Following six months of construction work, Central Coast Council and the NSW Government have today officially opened Green Point’s redeveloped Sun Valley Park.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said construction fencing has now been dismantled and the new regional playspace is open for everyone to enjoy.
“When I doorknocked the streets of Green Point in 2019 one of the most common requests I received was for a better playground, and I am delighted that a partnership between the NSW Government and Central Coast Council has delivered such a fantastic community asset,” Mr Crouch said.
“The ‘new’ Sun Valley Park was designed with input from the community so that it meets the needs of Green Point’s growing number of families.
“The finished product includes new basketball courts, play equipment, a flying fox, park furniture, barbeques, a water refill station, pathways, landscaping, fencing, a new amenity building and more car parking.”
Chief Executive Officer of Central Coast Council David Farmer said the redevelopment provides a new inclusive playspace and outdoor recreational space for the community to safely play, keep active and connect.
“This partnership and funding from the NSW Government has enabled Council to deliver a purpose built inclusive playspace which was designed with input from the community and to meet the needs of this area’s growing population,” Mr Farmer said.
“We know Coast families love playspaces and I look forward to seeing our community enjoy this new facility.
“Sun Valley Park playspace is now the Central Coast’s third regional level playspace and part of Council’s network of 260 playspaces.”
This project has been funded by $1,347,500 from the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund in addition to a contribution from Central Coast Council.
