New playspaces on Coast for families

Families across the Coast have access to even more exciting playspaces now our teams have completed construction on playspace projects at Budgewoi, Umina Beach, Woy Woy, Copacabana, Gwandalan and San Remo.

Guided by community feedback as part of our adopted Central Coast Playspace Strategy, we have completed improvement works on popular playspaces to make each of the new areas safe, inclusive and accessible for the whole community.

The heart of any neighbourhood, playspaces are important community hubs where people of all ages and interests can connect, socialise, learn and lead active lifestyles.

We operate and maintain over 260 playspaces across the region and are thrilled to have completed these playspaces that not only reflect the needs and wants of residents, but also contribute to active lifestyles of our local children.

Outdoor playgrounds in the Central Coast region currently remain open for exercise purposes, and the Council is working to ensure as many areas as possible are available to support social distancing.
