Popular Carparks at Long Jetty Receive a Makeover


Friday, 3 June 2016


Central Coast Council will start work on Monday to upgrade the carparks at a popular reserve at Long Jetty.

Saltwater Creek Reserve boasts a regional play space with an all access swing, mini BMX track, barbecues and picnic facilities, open reserve, free Wi-Fi and a boat ramp to access Tuggerah Lakes.

Council’s Director of Infrastructure and Operations, Mr Greg McDonald, said the upgrade will complement the popular reserve.

“Both carparks desperately need an upgrade and we promise you will notice an improvement to the surface and have more parking as a result,” Mr McDonald said.

“In order to carry out these works though, we need to close both carparks temporarily.

“We know this closure will be inconvenient to users, but it’s the best option to carry out the works in a safe and timely manner.”

Weather permitting, work is expected to be finished at the end of July and includes:

  • A new boat and trailer car park that will provide 10 formalised spaces for boats and trailers as well as improved rigging and turning areas
  • A new main carpark that will provide 83 formalised car spaces - providing an additional 14 spaces, more than there is now
  • Realignment of the shared path off road to improve safety
  • A new and improved boat ramp (4.5 metres wide) to access Tuggerah Lakes.

During the works, boat ramps users can still launch their vessel from the nearby ramp at Picnic Point, The Entrance.

“The park, play space and BMX track will be open – residents will just need to find parking nearby to the park,” Mr McDonald added.

Parking is available across the Central Coast Highway at the Lions Park (aka Rocket Park) as well as along Tuggerah Parade and the adjoining streets.
