What is The Waterfront?

The Waterfront Project involves a co-ordinated re-development along Sea Parade, adjacent to the Port MacDonnell Jetty. It will bring to life the foreshore space along Sea Parade by improving community facilities, providing linkages to other parts of the township, building cohesion with the recently upgraded jetty and creating an integrated space for people to enjoy.

At a total cost of $1,875m, it’s a significant project to be undertaken by the District Council of Grant and has been made possible by two successful funding applications through the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure and Council’s 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 Annual Budgets.

The project has been divided into two stages.

STAGE 1

The first stage of the project, which was completed in December 2018, included:

  • A new boardwalk
  • refurbished toilets
  • new vegetation
  • jetty plaza and information shelter
  • public art
  • upgraded car park
STAGE 2

The second stage of the project will include:

  • Playground Redevelopment
  • Fitness Park
  • Redevelopment of the town entrance at Standish Street
  • General landscaping across the Stage 1 and Stage 2 spaces

Over the course of two years, Council has worked with the Allendale Area School on STEM projects relating to The Waterfront redevelopment. During 2018, Year 8 students worked on a playground design project as part of their maths and science classes to contribute to the overall concept design development for Stage 2. These are local students who will access and use the area regularly and Council wanted to obtain input from young people in the district in a meaningful and innovative way.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    The District Council of Grant is redeveloping the playground and other spaces along the Port MacDonnell foreshore. 

    The playground design is at concept stage only and is based on a STEM project undertaken by Year 8 students at Allendale East Area School in 2018. 

    Other areas being developed are the foreshore entrance at Standish Street and a new fitness park near Tenterden Reserve.
