Upgrade of Playground at The Entrance Waterfront


Monday, 1 August 2016


This week Central Coast Council will close the playground at The Entrance Waterfront to undertake a major upgrade and expansion to the play area.

A new larger play area will be installed over the coming months as part of the $3.5m upgrade of The Entrance Waterfront.

As part of this project the nearby Sails Stage has already been removed, however the much loved Vera’s Garden will stay, as will the existing large pine trees in the area.

Phillip Loone, Manager of Strategic and Environmental Planning, said that the upgrade is about Council investing in creating great outdoor spaces to enhance the area’s natural beauty.

“The new play area will be a larger, more diverse, more colourful and interactive play space that will cater for children of all ages,” Mr Loone said.

While the playground transition is underway, families can use the nearby playground on the other side of Memorial Park, next to the Visitor Information Centre.

Weekly musical entertainment at The Entrance Waterfront will be temporarily suspended and resume once the demolition and related site works are finished.

Upcoming festivals and events such as the Country Music Festival, the Ukulele Festival and Chromefest will continue as usual.

Mr Loone said that Council’s contractors were working tirelessly to complete the overall upgrade of The Entrance Waterfront.
