Nuatali Nelmes: New playspaces a game-changer


It’s a great time to be active in Newcastle as we invest $4 million into enhanced recreation spaces for the community.

The improvements are designed to consider users of all abilities and will include more accessible features.

Playgrounds at Adamstown, Stockton and Waratah will have new equipment, while a $3 million playspace is being created at Hamilton’s historic Gregson Park.

We know how much our community values its open spaces, which provide local children and families with the opportunity to spend more time outdoors and engage in an active and healthy lifestyle.

City of Newcastle has invested more than $10 million into playground projects over the past five years and there’s plenty more to come.

City of Newcastle is committed to delivering quality playgrounds and green spaces.

The creation of an inclusive playspace at Hamilton’s Gregson Park will deliver a significant element of City of Newcastle’s adopted Masterplan for the precinct.

The new playspace will feature a native garden, trampolines and a balance obstacle course, with Maddie’s Bench to be retained.

At Gregson Park, construction will take place with minimal disruption to the use of the rest of the park, and weather permitting, the new playground will be open by October, while the smaller playgrounds are expected to be completed by the end of May.

Local playgrounds at Adamstown Park, Rawson Park in Stockton and Waratah’s Coolamin Road Reserve are also being replaced, while Islington Park playground will have its softfall upgraded.

All the projects will deliver enhanced and accessible playspaces for children across the city.
