Cessnock City Council is inviting residents to assist in shaping the future of Poppet Head Park, Kitchener as plans are made for the park’s future to ensure it can be enjoyed by the community for years to come.

Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent is urging residents to share their ideas and feedback on this important piece of community infrastructure that tells a very important story of our past.

“Poppet Head Park is a very special and unique recreational space in our community after it was converted from a colliery site to a park by way of a community initiative back in the late 1980s.”

“As such the park is a historic place containing many remnants of our past including the iconic poppet head, old building footings and the mine dam.”

“We want to hear from community members about how we continue to celebrate our past while also looking at the future development of this space. Council wants to ensure the park’s potential as a recreational and cultural facility is fully realised and enjoyed by generations to come.”

Residents are invited to participate in a community meeting being held at Poppet Head Park Thursday 1 March 2018 at 10:30am to 12.30pm to share feedback on the development and use of the park.

Council is also conducting a survey that can be accessed online at www.cessnock.nsw.gov.au/poppetheadpark and is also available in hardcopy at the Cessnock City Council Administration building.
