Harold Gregson Youth Space

Harold Gregson Youth Space

The fourth and final stage of the Maitland Regional Sports Complex upgrades are coming in 2023, proudly funded by the NSW Government.

A brand new playspace, full sized basketball and multipurpose court, parkour equipment, and an upgraded skate park on the way to Harold Gregson Reserve.

An events lawn and amphitheatre, an amenities block, large picnic shelter, RV parking, public electric vehicle charging and new parking and shade for the existing offroad remote control track are among the other features on the way thanks to the $7 million project.There will also be a new space designed for young people to connect, play and be active.

Positive environmental outcomes are a priority of these works, with the planting of large legacy trees like figs to provide deep shade and improve canopy cover, mitigating urgan heat, in the area for generations to come. The site has also been identified by Council as one which will be targeted for further revegetation in the future.No one understands our community parks like the young people that live here and in November and December 2021, we asked you what you love best and what you wanted to see more of at Harold Gregson Park. 

Works are set to be complete in June 2023.
