Thanks to the City of Canada Bay, splashing about in the Parramatta River will become much easier with the upgrade to McIlwaine Park Foreshore.
Proudly funded by the NSW Government, the upgrade currently under construction by Glascott Landscape and Civil will improve access to the foreshore so that visitors can enjoy kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and other fun water activities.
Key project features include:
- Upgrades to the foreshore areas of the park to provide a new accessible pathway along the foreshore
- Installation of pedestrian lighting
- New environmentally friendly seawall incorporating natural rockpools for biodiversity, including installation of living Seawall tiles designed to naturally increase fish habitat within the area
- Construction of a beach area
- A launch facility for water activities such as kayaking, rowing and stand-up paddle boarding
- New accessible BBQ and picnic facilities
- Native landscaping including the planting of 22 new trees.
Glascott are all-in on the scope of works, with the installation of a Coffer dam and demolition of the existing seawall and surrounding infrastructure due to commence shortly.
Our team are committed to working with Council and the community to create a great place where everyone can dip in and enjoy the river. We look forward to providing updates as we progress with this landmark river activation project.
