$300,000 Makeover for Maybury Peace Park
Published on 05 September 2022
Cessnock City Council is pleased to announce that a play space upgrade to Maybury Peace Park in Weston kicked off today, Monday 5 September 2022.
Council engaged with the community to develop a Masterplan for Maybury Peace Park which was adopted in May 2021. Council was then successful in obtaining $300,000 in grant funding under the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund to complete the works.
The play space upgrade will include new and exciting play elements such as inground trampolines, an accessible spinner, net swings and sand play. The project will also allow for improved access via new pathway connections, along with landscaping works.
To ensure the safety of residents, the works will be fenced off, however the main playground will be predominantly accessible for the community to utilise during construction.
Cessnock City Council Mayor Jay Suvaal said improving our local parks and playgrounds was one of his priorities as Mayor and he looked forward to seeing the project get underway.
“Maybury Peace Park has always been so popular within the community, and these improvements will take this much-loved park to a new level,” Mayor Suvaal said.
“Both of my kids love going to the park, so I’m sure they, along with other local kids and their families will enjoy the new facilities and equipment once the project is complete.”
Works are expected to be completed in November 2022, weather permitting.
This project has been made possible with a $300,000 grant under the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund.
