Fingal Foreshore Park - Concept Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We are currently improving the quality of our parks and playgrounds across the Tweed Shire.

Council has received a $107,000 grant from the NSW Government’s Everyone Can Play Program to upgrade the park. Council will match this funding and partner with the local community to create a recreational space that is more inclusive of everyone.

You can review the Fingal Foreshore Park Draft Concept Plan now.

The draft concept plan was determined by the outcome of community engagement activities including a community survey and a pop up Family Fun Day in the Park. Thank you to the 100 local residents and visitors who attended the event in the park held on Saturday 14 September 2019. The community feedback can viewed here.

The next stage is to proceed with a Cultural Heritage Assessment of the area. The assessment will improve the understanding, identification and assessment of Aboriginal cultural heritage values within the site.

The project is scheduled to be completed by October 2020.

    Thanks for having your say on the proposed upgrade to Fingal Foreshore Park, Fingal Head

    Over 60 people completed the survey which canvased ideas for the new play space.

    Stage One survey – July 2019

    63 responses

    Respondents to the survey supported the idea of upgrading the park and told us what they would like to see (in order of priority):

    • Natural and built shade for sun protection
    • Natural play equipment that caters for 2-12 years
    • Pathways and improved access for people with a disability or a mobility impairment
    • A cultural play space that captures the cultural values of the site
    • Slide, climbing equipment, swings
    • Improved access to the viewing platform
    • Seating areas

    Protecting the existing open space for picnics, informal games and other activities, providing outdoor fitness equipment, and improved maintenance were also important to the local community.

    The proposal and design of the new play space will also be determined by the outcome of a Cultural Heritage Assessment of the area. The assessment will improve the understanding, identification and assessment of Aboriginal cultural heritage values within the site.

    Thank you to the local community for providing your ideas on what you would like to see included in the new playspace at Fingal Foreshore Park.

    We are currently reviewing this feedback and will be hosting a fun ‘pop up’ event in the next few months to hear your design ideas for the park, including the choice of play equipment. Watch this space for more information.

    The final design of the new playspace will be determined by the outcome community engagement activities and an Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Assessment of the area, which is soon to commence.
