Cessnock community and government representatives celebrate opening of Bridges Hill Park Playground
Cessnock City Councillors, Council staff, federal and state government representatives along with community members celebrated yesterday’s official opening of the Bridges Hill Park Playground.
Some of the highlights include the viewing platform, new pathways improving connectivity to Cessnock CBD, the children’s bicycle track. Indigenous theming and sky tower. The detail and care taken to design and build this high quality space is evident. From the nature play area with balance beams and timber logs, to the nearby adventure playground catering to all ages and abilities.
Cessnock City Mayor, Bob Pynsent called the park a spectacular community asset that has exceeded all expectations noting “It’s no surprise that every time I drive past it’s full of residents and visitors with huge smiles on their faces. Whether they are enjoying time as a family, some outdoor exercise, shooting hoops, taking in the view of the Brokenback Ranges or cooking up a barbeque. Bridges Hill Park Playground is a special place everyone in our community can go and enjoy.”
Federal Member for the Hunter, Joel Fitzgibbon added “the park is now one of the City’s greatest assets and is a great credit to Council and its workforce.”
Trevor Khan, representing the NSW Government at the event said the project was a great success commenting “In replacing the old playground, the new playground here at Bridges Hill Park will improve liveability of the area, promote community engagement and encourage more visitors to the Cessnock CBD.”
Council secured funding under various programs over the year, including the Federal Government’s National Stronger Regions Fund, the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund, Social Housing Community Improvement Fund and Resources for Regions program.
