Share your memories of Hamilton’s Gregson Park to help shape its future

With the City Of Newcastle currently developing a masterplan to help shape the future of Hamilton’s Gregson Park, and they want to hear your stories, memories and ideas on what that future would look like.

Invaluable community input will help shape the masterplan which aims to consider existing infrastructure at the park, community priorities for facilities such as the former bowling club site, a new play space and amenities as well as the park’s potential use for future events and activities.

“Hamilton is a unique, diverse and iconic Newcastle suburb with Gregson Park the green space at its heart, “ Councillor Carol Duncan, chair of the Community and Culture Advisory Committee, said. 

“How Gregson Park is maintained, preserved and enhanced in the future will play an important part in how Hamilton as a suburb grows for the next generation, which is why we’re seeking feedback from a broad spectrum of our community.” 

People can have their say by completing a survey on the City of Newcastle website as well as uploading photos, stories, memories and ideas via an online mapping tool.

You can have your say on the future of Gregson Park, and share your memories, stories and photos here until Wednesday 30 September.

It is expected that the draft Gregson Park Masterplan will be put on public display in early 2021.
