Open Space Parks Maintenance Schedule

Open Space Maintenance Overview 

Council’s Open Space and Community Facilities team carry out scheduled maintenance works on all Council managed parks, sporting ovals, playgrounds and tourist information bays in the Cessnock Local Government Area.

Activities include but are not limited to; mowing, trimming and edging, pest and weed control, line marking and installation of goal posts on sporting fields, minor repairs and litter removal.

Playgrounds are inspected on a monthly basis and repairs undertaken as required.

Floodlights at sporting ovals are inspected before each sporting season and repairs undertaken as required.

Teams of staff who operate ride on mowers and tractors as well as minor plant and equipment undertake the maintenance on a scheduled basis.

Maintenance cycle frequencies vary from weekly to “as required” and are listed in the table below.  Please contact Council's Parks & Reserves Coordinator on 02 4993 4100 for further information

**The program is based on a peak growing season during summer months and may vary during dry periods or over winter.**
