Lions Park future joins other Peninsula consultations

The future of Woy Woy Lions Park will be subject of a public consultation to be held by Central Coast Council over the next month.

It will be one of three consultations with potential ramifications for the Peninsula being held concurrently by the council.

It will join a consultation about the future of the Austin Butler Reserve and a consultation about the Council's Community Strategy Plan and its Local Strategic Planning Statement.

Council's director Ms Melanie Smith said the park had been earmarked for an upgrade, as "a new district level playspace".

"With the project about to enter crucial design work, the time is right to find out more about what the community wants to see," she said.

"We have a fantastic response from the community who got involved in the recent Pelican Park concept design survey."

She said that survey indicated that residents did not want funding removed from a new district playground at for Lions Park.

"This survey will provide Council staff a snapshot of how Lions Park is currently used as we seek to understand the demographics of its users."

She said council staff wanted to know who used it, why and how often, and what would benefit them.

"This feedback is important as it will inform the future," Ms Smith said.

The Woy Woy Lions Park upgrade is budgeted to cost $340,000.

Designs and tender process will follow the close of this public consultation, and it is anticipated that work will be completed within the next 12 months.

Submissions to the consultation conducted through the council's YourVoiceOurCoast.com website close on Friday, October 27.
