The NSW Government has today released the final designs for Gosford CBD’s new Leagues Club Field, which will transform the site into a world-class public space.
Planning and Public Spaces Minister Rob Stokes was in Gosford to unveil the nature-inspired design, which features new picnic areas and amenities, walkways, an inclusive playground and water play areas.

“Today’s announcement sets a new standard for regional playgrounds and open spaces across the State,” Mr Stokes said.
“The final designs showcase best practice in creating exemplary play spaces that invite everyone in the community to stay and play.”
When complete, the park will also feature dozens of new trees, thousands of native plants and an innovative ‘tidal terrace’ that draws water from the bay at high tide and drains at low tide to create an ecosystem that changes from hour to hour.
Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the new Leagues Club Field highlighted the importance of quality open space as a part of Gosford’s revitalisation.
“The revitalisation of Gosford is going from strength to strength with cranes in the sky and new residential and commercial building work underway, as well as high-quality public spaces for locals and visitors to enjoy,” Mr Crouch said.
The Hunter and Central Coast Development Corporation (HCCDC) is leading the project and has worked with world-class designers, the community, Central Coast Council and the Darkinjung Local Aboriginal Land Council to create the final designs that reflect the local indigenous culture and history.
HCCDC will call tenders for construction in the coming days, with works expected to commence in late 2019.
The final designs for Leagues Club Field are available at the Hunter and Central Coast Development Corporation website.
