The Bridges Hill playground and access improvement project are part of the council’s Cessnock CBD revitalisation masterplan. New facilities included 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 includes 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.
