Singleton’s Townhead Park Additions

Filed under Community, Council, News, Singleton LGA ~ by Press on  15 Jan 2020

Stage one of the Townhead Park Masterplan are scheduled from 21 January 2020 through to 10 March 2020, weather depending. 

Mark Ihlein, Council’s Director Planning and Infrastructure Services said the first stage of works would address the community’s priorities – namely, the return of a playground including a multi-play unit, carousel, double swing, star surfer, horse springer, hammock and shade, plus seating and a barbeque area .

Townhead Park is an important site for Singleton and the local government area because of its strategic gateway location on the New England Highway and the obvious attraction of the Visitor Information Centre and café as a rest stop for tourists,” he said.

There have been a lot of comments from the community since unsafe play equipment was removed from the park in 2017, and Council has acted to make the funds available to replace the playground in the first stage of works.

This is just stage one of the Masterplan with a lot of exciting additions to come — including the relocation of the bike track in view of the café, a new sensory garden and the Arts and Cultural Centre, all of which will further encourage motorists to take a break while discovering the attractions that are available in the Singleton local government area.”

Stage one of construction is funded through Section 7.11 development contributions and Special Rate Variation funds.
