Apex Park Revitalisation

Project Overview

Stage 1 of the adopted Apex Park Masterplan began in late August 2018 through the Apex Park Revitalisation Project. These works included landscaping a grassed, tiered amphitheatre, installation of irrigation and electrical infrastructure and selective vegetation removal to improve usable spaces and sight lines throughout Apex Park. These works were scheduled to be completed prior to Remembrance Day, 11 November 2018.

Construction works for Stage 1b are scheduled to commence early 2019 following the Christmas school holidays.

The Apex Park Revitalisation project is proudly joint funded by NSW Government and Port Stephens Council.

Key features

Stage 1a works included:

  • Landscaping works to create a grassed amphitheatre
  • Selective vegetation removal to improve sight lines and useable spaces (additional tree planting to be undertaken during Stage 1b)
  • Installation of irrigation system
  • Installation of improved electrical services to support future upgrades and community events

Background | Apex Masterplan

Developed as an action from Council’s Nelson Bay Town Centre and Foreshore Strategy 2012, the Apex Park Masterplan was adopted by Council in December 2015. The plan was costed by Council, but not funded. Council has since applied for and been successful in receiving grant funding, thus allowing for the Apex Park Revitalisation stage 1 works to commence.
