Playground relocation - Bayswood, Vincentia
Shoalhaven City Council is engaging landowners within the Bayswood residential area regarding the current state of the Pacific City Park playground and seeking feedback on options to improve this facility. Pacific City Park is located on Coaster Circuit, Vincentia.
Since the playground’s installation in 2008, there have been ongoing issues related to the low lying location and its inaccessibility for community and maintenance due to regular water logging. The water logging of the site is due to the close proximity of a waterway and soil condition limitations. The water logging of the site has also compromised the normal lifespan of the existing playground. Therefore, Council plans to replace the playground within the current financial year (2016-17).
