Lakeside Park in Top Tourism Award Finals
Pittwater’s Lakeside Holiday Park at North Narrabeen has been nominated as a finalist in the 2012 Greater Sydney Tourism Awards.
The park is one of over 30 nominations for the awards, which are sponsored by the NSW Government and the Tourism Council of NSW.
Lakeside Holiday Park has been nominated in the Tourism & Caravan Park category.
Managed on the Council’s behalf by tourism operators ATPM, the park has made several improvements in the last year, such as a recycled water system, power-saving lights and free wireless internet.
The park has been extensively landscaped with drought-resistant native plants. A new ‘eco-lodge cabin’ has also been installed as an example of sustainable accommodation.
As well as improvements to facilities at the park, Lakeside has also shown its commitment to the northern beaches community by opening its doors to terminally ill children and their families last summer, through the locally based charity Pittwater Cares.
It will host surf lifesavers from around NSW later this year when the Coastal Environment Centre next to the park presents its statewide Coastal Ambassadors program.
General Manager Mark Ferguson said the Council would continue to promote sustainability and improve facilities at Lakeside in the coming year.
“Next on the list is to replace existing cabins with upgraded ones, put in new kitchens and install a water playground.”
“We’re very pleased to see the park being recognised for its efforts in the last year.”
Lakeside park manager Neall Scott said his team has a strong focus on customer satisfaction and are committed to delivering memorable holiday experiences.
“We have combined this fantastic location with modern amenities and first-class hospitality. Lifelong memories are made at Lakeside and we are grateful to have been recognised for that.”
