The federally funded $8.25 million redevelopment of the Peninsula Recreation Precinct is underway, with the first shovels in the ground in February 2022.

Federal Member for Robertson, Lucy Wicks MP said the Federal Government has been working with Central Coast Council to ensure this work starts as soon as possible.

“With the funding agreement finalised in November 2021, we’re now seeing the construction timelines released for the Peninsula Recreation Precinct,” Ms Wicks said.

“Full completion of all projects is anticipated by November 2023, more than a year ahead of schedule.

“This is fantastic news for local sporting clubs and peninsula residents who have been waiting for this announcement and are looking forward to using the new facilities.”

Central Coast Council have been able to review the anticipated work schedules and have revised the timelines.

Draft changes to Council’s Capital Works program, if approved, will allow accelerated commencement as per the timeframes below:

  • Tennis Facility – Commence in February 2022
  • Road and Car Park Construction – Commence in February 2022
  • Sports Amenities Buildings – Commence construction in September 2022
  • Skate Park/Recreation area Redevelopment – Commence construction December 2022
  • Cricket Nets – Commence in July 2023

Central Coast Council Administrator Rik Hart said the local community has strongly supported plans to further enhance Umina’s sporting and recreation precinct, and now this goal is becoming a reality.

“We’re thankful to the Federal Government for the substantial funding, which is enabling Council to deliver new sports and recreation infrastructure based on the community’s vision and needs,” Mr Hart said.

“This milestone follows a shared journey between Council, local community sporting groups, Umina Community Group, the hundreds of engaged residents that participated in previous community consultation, and the Federal Government.

“This redevelopment will provide engaging and accessible sporting and recreation spaces that connect our community and support active and healthy lifestyles - for all ages and abilities.”
