Leagues Club Field Regional Playground
Client: Hunter & Central Coast Development Corporation
Project value: AU$10 million

TSA is assisting the Hunter and Central Coast Development Corporation with the project management of a new public domain in the centre of Gosford. The aim is to repurpose the existing Leagues Club Field into a new community parkland inclusive of landscaping, children’s play area, and an intricate tidal terrace. The new facility will complement other current and proposed facilities within the area and will become a key component of the overall Gosford civic area, forming part of the broader Central Business District Revitalisation Project.

The design of the park draws inspiration from the cultural and heritage values of Gosford and is heavily influenced by the Darkinjung people who are the traditional custodians of the land.

During the construction phase, the discovery of potential aboriginal middens was made within the site. These were treated as an “unexpected find” in accordance with the unexpected finds procedure. TSA was immediately contacted and worked to ensure that the approved process was adhered to, with us managing the find, engaging the Local Aboriginal Land Council and an external specialist consultant.

TSA has been engaged from the design finalisation phase through to construction and handover. We provided a detailed program for the works, with the contract designed to accommodate the environmentally sensitive and highly public sensitive nature of the project.
