Plan for $1.5 million sports play hub in Wallsend now open for community feedback

Construction of a $1.5 million active hub in Wallsend is expected to get underway mid-year, with the concept design for the project now open for community feedback.


The active hub, which draws its inspiration from a similar design in Stockton, will provide a variety of recreation facilities in Federal Park which is central to schools, sporting fields and the Wallsend Swimming Pool.

Under the plans, Federal Park will be transformed into a vibrant hub of activity with features including an expanded playspace, bike track, multi-sport courts, rebound wall, climbing wall and fitness stations.
