New playspace open at Anderson Park, Woy Woy
This fully fenced new playspace features a multiply climbing unit with double slides and rope climbs, rocker, swing set, voice tubes, twista and balance trail and accessible pathway and softfall - whilst taking advantage of the shade provided by mature trees within the reserve.
Council has been improving Woy Woy Town Centre for the community and have been in discussions with local businesses and residents on plans since October 2019.
This playspace reflects the recently adopted Central Coast playspace strategy developed with community input and will complement the soon to be completed Woy Woy Wharf opposite this reserve and the periodic events held at this foreshore site (such as markets and other community activities).
A continuous shared pathway on the foreshore opposite the park provides a level surface to walk, scooter or ride the 1km to Lions Park which boasts a previously renewed playspace, BBQ and picnic facilities, fish cleaning station, boat ramps, jetties and public amenities.
The completion of this new playspace has been timed to coincide with the unfortunate need to soon remove the ageing but much-loved playground unit 75m away at Pelican Park. This removal is required due to a safety audit showing that the equipment no longer meets current Australian safety standards. With the roots of the adjoining mature tree continuing to cause safety hazards, this site was not suitable for a new playspace to be built. However, the site of the existing Pelican Park playground will remain as a public open space area, with the existing shaded picnic tables and fencing to remain and the area that currently has the play equipment being freshly turfed. This will provide a great location for a picnic and little ones to safely run around.
Council knows that playspaces and parks are important to the community and will continue to invest in their network of high quality inclusive playspaces and associated infrastructure that can contribute to active lifestyles for our children, support social engagement, are creative, enjoyable, appropriately sited, equitably distributed and sustainably managed.
Council is responsible for maintaining and managing over 260 playspaces across the Central Coast and safety remains paramount.
