Mallabula’s Caswell Reserve is set to receive a major makeover, with the installation of a new playground, public amenities, pathways and car park over the coming months.

Importantly, these upgraded facilities will be relocated to make the park safer and easier to access for everyone.

Mayor Ryan Palmer says the new facilities will better serve the local community.

“Caswell Reserve is a beautiful part of Port Stephens, and now it will have the recreation facilities to match. This is yet another project that Port Stephens Council is proud to deliver for our community.

“These much-needed upgrades will ensure that everyone can make the most of our surroundings, whether that’s playing outdoors with the kids, having a picnic, or getting out on the water,” he said.

Mayor Palmer says the new playground will be installed early December and is funded through Council’s capital works program.

“This new playground will have something for kids of every age — swings, climbing equipment, a mini carousel, balancing ropes and natural play areas.

“Best of all, the playground will be finished in time for Christmas as our big present to the kids on the Tilligerry Peninsula!”

To make the park and boat ramp easier to access, the existing gravel road will be sealed from Monday 3 December. During this process, the main access and car parking will be closed for approximately seven days.

The new public amenities are scheduled to be installed in February 2019 and will be co-located near the barbeque shelters and new playground to reduce potential conflicts between people and vehicles.
