Tenders called for Dixon Park Kiosk refurbishment

City of Newcastle is progressing with plans to revitalise Dixon Park, with contracts to refurbish the Dixon Park kiosk now open to tender.

The project will see the kiosk building transformed into an improved space with public seating, shade shelters and landscaping.

“This project supports City of Newcastle’s Coastal Revitalisation program which commenced in 2010 as part of a long-term commitment to enhance Newcastle's coastline,” Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes said.

“By investing in our coastal buildings, we hope to continue to make our beaches a welcoming place for our community and visitors, which is now more important than ever.

“Construction companies are invited to bid to refurbish the Dixon Park kiosk and contribute to the continued activation of Bathers Way.

“We will invite expressions of interest mid-year for the kiosk operations and Dixon Park Beach will become a vibrant hub where our community can connect and appreciate the benefits of living near the coast.”

Work to prepare the kiosk for use commenced in 2020, with provision of power and sewage infrastructure now complete. The transformation of the kiosk will see the relocation of a portion of the building’s faded mural which features local, four time world surfing champion, Mark Richards. The City has committed to fully restoring the mural in a new location on the southern side of the kiosk as a part of the completed project.

In 2019 the Dixon Park Surf Life Saving Club was refurbished with new change rooms, space for female members, and accessible amenities. The $640,000 upgrade was jointly funded by NSW Government through a Surf Club Facilities Grant, City of Newcastle, Dixon Park SLSC and Ability Links NSW.

Tender submissions can be made via tenderlink.
