“The Entrance is much loved by our community and it’s a popular place for locals and visitors, but it needs proper investment for the future,” said Ms McBride.
“That’s why the Albanese Government is funding $750,000 to upgrade Vera’s Watergarden, $175,000 to make the waterfront plaza playspace more accessible, and $170,000 to renovate The Entrance Ocean Baths.
“We’re also investing $40,000 to install shade sails over the grandstand seating at the Baths, and another $100,000 for the clubhouse.”
The Ocean Baths are an iconic heritage listed site, which have been popular on the Coast for generations.
The funding will improve sun safety and water quality at the Baths by upgrading the pipes and pump system, so locals and visitors can swim safely and comfortably all year round.
Emma McBride said that she will continue to work closely with Council and ther community to deliver these upgrades for our region.
“The Albanese Government will help breathe life back into The Entrance because for us – the Central Coast is a priority,” Ms McBride said.
