Caves Beach will have a $1.3 million amenities block and beachside revamp completed by summer, Lake Macquarie City Council says.
The amenities block will feature a family change room, male and female change areas, and a standalone change room for people with mobility challenges.
A beach-themed artwork by Peter Sesselmann to illustrate the identity and heritage of Caves Beach will be incorporated in the building.
“Council recognises how important it is to beachgoers to provide adequate change rooms and other amenities,” Lake Macquarie City Council’s asset manager, Helen Plummer, said.
“The new facility will include a first aid area, additional storage, and a family room for parents and their children to change privately.
“The standalone change room for people with mobility challenges includes a fully accessible toilet, shower and hoist that will allow people to transition into a beach or water wheelchair.
“We are also upgrading landscaping in the park area to include an accessible barbecue, new paths, seating and an eye-catching sculpture by local artist, Kelly-Ann Lees, inspired by the Norfolk Island Pines that line the beach foreshore.”
Access to the old amenities block will be restricted during construction but temporary toilets will be available.
