How do you use Woy Woy Lions Park?
The popular park has long been earmarked for an upgrade, and a new district level playspace will ensure that it remains central in the lives of peninsula families for many years to come.
Council’s Director Community and Recreation Services Melanie Smith said with the project about to enter crucial design work the time is right to find out more about what the community wants to see in a future playspace.
“We have a fantastic response from the community who got very involved in the recent Pelican Park concept design survey, and what was indicated in their answers was a real passion for Lions Park as they didn’t want funding to be removed from the new district playspace.
“This survey will provide Council staff a snapshot of how Lions Park is currently used as we seek to understand the demographics of its users. We want to know who uses the playspace, why and how often they it and what would benefit them.
“This feedback is important as it will inform the future design and help us deliver a playspace that meets the diverse needs of the community,” Ms Smith said.
Council Administrator Rik Hart said he hopes the community take advantage of the opportunity to have their voice heard in the brief survey.
“There has been a lot of consultation in the past around projects in the Peninsula. I want to reassure the community that we’re moving forward, and we will deliver this district playspace that the community told us they wanted back in 2020, and again during the Let’s Talk Woy Woy engagement process.
“Between Pelican Park and Lions Park, and the new skatepark at Umina as part of the Peninsula Sport and Recreation project, there’s a lot to look forward to for local residents in 2024 and beyond.”
It is expected that the Woy Woy Lions Park district playspace upgrade will cost approximately $340,000 as outlined in the Central Coast Council 2023/24 Operational Plan.
Designs and tender process will follow the close of this public consultation, and it is anticipated that work will be completed by June 2024.
