Hindmarsh Park

Kiama Council is undertaking a $3 million upgrade to Hindmarsh Park with grant funding from the NSW State Government’s Public Spaces Legacy Program.

The centrepiece of the upgrades will include constructing a new, all ages/ all abilities playground with shade and potential incorporation of a rocket ship play structure.

The rocket would reinstate a similar piece of equipment that was removed from the park around 40 years ago, which many residents and visitors remember fondly.

The proposed upgrades will also include new shelters, picnic tables and electric BBQs, potentially a new and upgraded stage with public amenities and areas for water play.

The upgrades are also intended to create improved accessibility throughout the park and linking Hindmarsh Park to Black Beach Reserve. 

Hindmarsh Park is situated in the centre of Kiama and is a focal point of the town.

The park currently contains a playground, picnic tables, a bandstand, the Joyce Wheatley Community Centre and SENTRAL Youth Services Centre.

The project will improve the quality, aesthetics and safety of the park and deliver a significant open space play and leisure facility of regional importance.

The upgrade will give better community access and a fresh appeal to this already popular open space in the centre of Kiama.

Tenders for expert landscape design consultants to undertake the works are being assessed by Council and a recommendation to award the tender will go to the October Council meeting.

The work will involve a comprehensive program of community consultation.

There will be numerous opportunities for community members, local businesses and other stakeholders to have your say during the process. This will take the form of online surveys, information sessions, workshops and more.      

Stay tuned for further updates on this exciting project in the heart of Kiama.
