Landscape Solutions awarded Leagues Club Field construction tender

Plans for the delivery of the $10 million transformation of Gosford’s Leagues Club Field into a landmark regional play space will soon become reality, with Hunter and Central Coast Development Corporation (HCCDC) today announcing the successful construction contractor.

Landscape Solutions has been selected through an open tender process and will work with HCCDC to deliver this high-quality, inclusive public domain. The space will feature nature-inspired play areas, a unique waterway that fills and drains with the tide, and design elements drawn from the history of local Indigenous groups.

Acting Chief Executive Valentina Misevska was pleased to announce the milestone and looked forward to construction getting underway.

“Today’s announcement is an exciting step towards delivering significant change in the Gosford landscape,” said Ms Misevska.

“We have worked to understand community desires for the space, and over the project we have partnered with Central Coast Council, the Darkinjung Local Aboriginal Land Council and our landscape architect Turf Design and Environmental Partnerships to create a great design that will attract families back into the Gosford CBD.

“Awarding the construction contract to Landscape Solutions is one of the final steps of planning, and works will soon begin to build a unique, inclusive space for everyone to relax, play and have the opportunity to learn about the Aboriginal history of the region.”

Construction is expected to commence on Leagues Club Field in December 2019 and continue throughout 2020. The entire park will be closed during this time, with minor disruption expected for nearby residents, businesses and traffic.
