Adcock Park Redevelopment Taking Shape
On December 3, 2019, Mayor Lisa Matthews marked an exciting moment for current and future users of Garnet Adcock Memorial Park at West Gosford as the first sod was turned to signal commencement of construction on the first stage of the $26.2 million redevelopment of the site.
The redevelopment of Garnet Adcock Memorial Park (Adcock Park), West Gosford will ensure it is a premium sporting precinct that provides increased safety, access and functionality for the local community and sporting groups.
Mayor Lisa Matthews said the redevelopment will support increased usage while also creating a venue capable of attracting inter-regional and State level sporting competitions to the Central Coast.
“We acknowledge and thank the NSW State Government for providing funding to help us deliver projects the community want and need,” Mayor Matthews said.
“Spaces such as Adcock Park are vitally important as they encourage physical activity and help to create a sense of belonging. We look forward to delivering a world-class facility where everyone can be active, socialise and engage in community activities.”
On completion of works, Adcock Park Regional Sports Facility will consist of a new two storey multi-purpose sportsground amenities building, 32 netball courts, 10 touch football/OzTag fields, one turf cricket wicket, two synthetic cricket wickets, one AFL field, one velodrome, one little athletics fields, sportsground lighting to 100 lux luminance across the majority of the site, 550+ consolidated car parking area and access and maintenance pathways throughout the site.
Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said developing quality local spaces was key to making the Central Coast a fantastic place to live, work and play.
“The redeveloped Adcock Park will be a fantastic asset for people who participate in netball, cricket, touch football, cycling, little athletics and AFL, as well as local schools who use these facilities for sport carnivals,” Mr Crouch said.
Construction of the new multi-purpose amenities building is continuing to move forward despite current COVID – 19 restrictions.
At this stage current COVID – 19 has not affected any construction activities within Adcock Park, Pluim are ensuring that all workers are obeying to Federal and State legislation and have systems in place to ensure that this is followed
