Robinson Reserve

Background

Port Stephens Council has now developed the detailed design for the major upgrade to recreation facilities at Anna Bay’s Robinson Reserve, part of the Birubi Point Aboriginal Place.

The upgrade at Robinson Reserve aims to create attractive, multi-purpose facilities that the community can all enjoy and is in keeping with the cultural significance of the site.

The newsletter from September 2019 features the final design for Robinson Reserve and a copy is located in the document library (right).

What we've been doing

We've been working through the process to obtain the necessary environmental and site approvals for this project. Successful subcontractors to deliver the detailed design and construction of the project have been appointed through a tender process. Also, we've held a skate park design workshop with community representatives in early June 2019 and the findings from this workshop can also be found in the document library.

We've also been working hard to keep Robinson Reserve well-loved by both the local community and visitors whilst we've wait for the upgrade to begin. This has involved scheduling a number of events over the past six months at Robinson Reserve. Some of the pictures from these events are shown in the image gallery.

Timing

Approvals for Phase 1 of the upgrade have now been received.
Construction will be delivered in two phases:
Phase 1 carpark: works are due to start late October 2019.

** The existing car park will be temporarily closed from 7am Monday 25 November to 9am Wednesday 27 November to facilitate the new car park construction. Pedestrian access to the beach and skate park is still available during this time. **

Phase 2 remaining park upgrade: works will start in early 2020 and will include new playground, skate park, BBQ facilities and amenities as well as Aboriginal Place interpretative signage and native landscaping..
