Recreation and Reserves


The Newcastle coastline has many parks, reserves and open spaces and the Coastal Revitalisation program encourages participation in a range of activities. Walking, cycling, outdoor exercise, beach sports, swimming, surfing and skateboarding are all encouraged across our coastline.

Our Coastal Revitalisation program provides facilities which maximise choice and opportunity in recreation and encourage participation. Some examples include:

  • Empire Park skatepark
  • Dixon Park reserve
  • Traffic and parking access at The Hill
  • New seating and access to beaches.
