Leagues Club Field
A showcase for the region
Leagues Club Field, in the Gosford CBD, is set to undergo a dramatic transformation with the unveiling of plans to create a nature-inspired regional play space for all ages. The park will promote unstructured ‘wild play’, with the introduction of natural bushland, water play, a grass playing field, amenities and new pedestrian links.
The development will address opportunities identified in the Government Architect NSW’s Gosford Urban Design Framework, which guides the development and renewal of the city. It marks another milestone in the continued revitalisation of Gosford, creating a vibrant, family-friendly space that will attract locals and tourists into the CBD.
Working with the community
In 2018, we conducted a four-week engagement program to find out how the Central Coast community would like to see the space used. Suggestions included shady trees, open green space, walkways, picnic areas and new amenities.
We worked closely with Central Coast Council to ensure that the plans meet the needs of the region, as well as the Darkinjung Local Aboriginal Land Council, to embed local Indigenous culture into the park.
The resulting plans go beyond structured playgrounds to create a living, breathing ecosystem that encourages immersive nature play and creates a green haven in the heart of Gosford.
