The park will get more car parking, a larger playground area, a fenced off-leash area for dogs, new footpath connections and upgrades to existing sporting infrastructure.    

The project follows strong advocacy from the local community, particularly through the Friends of Stevenson Park, and follows representations to the City of Newcastle by Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes and Ward 1 Councillor Emma White.

The Lord Mayor said the finalised Masterplan and Playground Concept enables upgrades requested by the Mayfield West community. 

Councillor White said the Stevenson Park Masterplan will see the community’s hard work pay off.

I want to congratulate the Friends of Stevenson Park and the broader Mayfield West community for their strong advocacy and hard work,” Cr White said. “We listened to your concerns and we’re getting on with the job of upgrading Stevenson Park for all local residents and visitors to enjoy.

The Lord Mayor and I have enjoyed the onsite meetings and getting to know the Mayfield West community and the Friends of Stevenson Park through the engagement process.

City of Newcastle has allocated $150,000 in the 2018-19 Budget to begin stage 1, construction of the new playground at Stevenson Park.
