Hamilton’s historic and much-loved Gregson Park is being renewed.
In 2020 City of Newcastle sought community feedback to help shape the future of this popular park, and this has been incorporated into the draft Gregson Park Masterplan.
Now is your chance to find out more about what’s coming to Gregson Park, and to provide your feedback before the Masterplan is finalised.
Community feedback included a desire for more native plants and incorporation of Aboriginal culture, improved amenities, a better playspace and space for active recreation, and more spaces for the community to come together. The community also wanted to ensure the heritage items including the fig trees were kept at the park.
The draft Masterplan aims to celebrate the existing heritage of the site and Awabakal culture, while meeting the recreational needs of the local community.
It includes a larger inclusive playspace in its existing location with nature play, water play and small yarning circle, a new community shelter on the former bowling club site, more shaded seating areas, potential for community gardens and kiosk, resurfaced tennis courts, additional active recreation facilities and upgraded amenities.
