Riverside Redevelopment - Stage 2

Riverside - Stage 2 will rejuvenate the entire precinct - from the beach carpark through to the former St Michael’s Oval - to complete the vision of the Riverside Strategic Master Plan and build on the success of the $1M Stage 1 works completed in 2014-15.

The development aims to activate the Wagga Beach and Murrumbidgee River precinct and develop the area as a focal point and destination for residents and visitors, as well as create linkages to the city’s CBD and existing civic precinct.

Project elements

The $6.7M Stage 2 project will integrate the former St Michael’s Oval and the former caravan park site into a large multipurpose public recreation space. The plans include:

  • Playground and water play: A large ‘destination’ playground with water play elements that will be designed to ensure minimum impact during flood
  • improvements to the existing path network and creation from a new shared path
  • Container food and beverage outlets: modified containers to provide flexible pop-up food and beverage opportunities that are removable during flood
  • Event spaces: Large, medium and small spaces to cater for a wide range of events, which can be used individually or combined for major events
  • Car parking upgrade: Trees for shade, CCTV and lighting

Funding

Stage 2 is funded by the NSW Government’s Regional Growth Environmental ($5M) and Wagga Wagga City Council ($1.7M)
