Stage One of the Bridges Hill Playground, Cessnock recently opened to the public. The Bridges Hill playground and access improvement project are part of the council’s Cessnock CBD revitalisation masterplan. New facilities include the establishment of a new regional playground, fitness stations, landscaping, pathways, shade structures and BBQ facilities.
ACOR Consultants worked with Moir Landscape Architecture to design the site drainage system which incorporated terrace walls, rock-lined swales and native revegetation as well as providing Structural, Electrical, and Hydraulic services.
The next stage of the project involves the construction of public amenities, additional barbecue areas, a yarning circle and more play spaces. The final stage involves car park improvements and improvements to pedestrian access with completion expected to be finalised in 2020.
