The design work undertaken by ASPECT Studios on stage one of the revitalisation of Jack Evans Boat Harbour is now complete and the new recreational and aquatic playground is open to the public. The upgrade to the Jack Evans Boat Harbour enriches the existing park experience to become a unique civic place of waterfront leisure. The design strongly promotes physical activity by providing a range of public domain elements such as extensive walkways and cycle-ways. Steps, ramps for those with physical challenges, and unique water front conditions allow access to the water’s edge for swimming and boating. At 4.3 hectares, the parklands cater for a range of other uses enabled by the promenade including meeting places, weekend markets, memorials, children’s play spaces and generous green banks for relaxation.
