Wallsend Active Hub

Earlier in 2021, we asked for your feedback on plans for a $1.5 million active hub in Wallsend. Overall, the feedback received was positive, with the community welcoming the exciting addition to Wallsend.

Work on Wallsend Active Hub will commence in August 2021. It features an expanded playspace, pump track for bikes, scooters and skateboards, multi-sport courts, rebound wall, climbing wall and fitness stations as shown in the original concept design. Additional shade shelters have been included in the final design in response to community feedback.

The construction of Wallsend Active Hub is supported by a $500,000 grant from the NSW Government’s Resources for Regions fund. Find out more about the project by clicking here.
