The areas include Veron Rd and Nambucca Dr.
Other Council work on the Peninsula include improvements at Runway Park, Woy Woy, which will have additional rubber softfall installed to further improve accessibility.
Construction works continue at Lemon Grove Netball Courts in Ettalong with a new multi-purpose amenities building.
Umina tennis courts are being upgraded with the installation of a new synthetic surface for court five to create a dedicated futsal court, and new roof on the amenities building.
Works are also underway at Umina oval to replace ageing irrigation to ensure the turf is efficiently watered, providing a safe and high quality playing surface for Umina United Football Club, Southern Spirit Cricket Club, Umina Junior Rugby League and Coast Oztag.
The Peninsula Leisure Centre's heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system is being replaced, taking until October to finish.
Woy Woy libraries are undergoing maintenance and improvement works, which require temporary closures.
