THE $400,000 playground upgrade funding will be provided to Central Coast Council to support the necessary upgrades to ensure safe and secure playgrounds for the local community.

 

Community led petitions informed the need for improved play spaces at a number of locations across the Central Coast.

 

The playgrounds that will benefit from this funding are:

 

Picnic Point Playground at The Entrance where parents have asked for fencing to make the playground more secure.

 

Maidens Brush Playground at Wyoming where parents have asked for additional play equipment and improvements to street safety at the location, and the iconic Rocket Park at Long Jetty, which Council have identified for major conservation works.

 

The proposed works will include upgrading of play equipment, installation of secure fencing, and any necessary repair works.

 

Member for The Entrance, David Mehan said that "parents and families have told me what they want and Labor has listened."

 

“It’s about getting the basics right, and if that includes footpaths and playgrounds that’s where my attention will be focused, Mr Mehan said.

 

“I want to thank my community for their support, which has allowed us to secure this funding."
