More of a makeover for Alex foreshore
  • Friday 15 May 2015

Council’s latest upgrade to the park along the Alexandra Headland foreshore is now complete and has been well received by nearby business and residents.

Division 4 Councillor Chris Thompson said the $350,000 upgrade included park furniture such as timber daybeds, a large shelter, pathways, lighting and landscaping.

“This was the fifth stage of improvements along Alex foreshore and we’ve received positive comments from the public throughout construction,” Cr Thompson said.

“There’s also a new events electricity box which will cater for entertainment events and the like within the park.

“The next stage of work will start later this year and will include extension of the revetment wall and a formalised beach access ramp, plus more lighting, pathways, and landscaping work.

“Remaining stages will include refurbishment of the skate park and playground.”

Ashley Robinson, General Manager of Alexandra Headland Surf Club, said the upgrade had improved the foreshore area.

“Stage 5 of the Alexandra Headland foreshore upgrade has really complimented both the foreshore and streetscape works,” Mr Robinson said.

“It completely changes the ambiance and amenity of the area.

“The Alex Surf Club congratulates Council and its contractors for a job well done.”

In addition to the ongoing upgrade of the park at Alexandra Headland foreshore, Council recently completed a $3.5 million streetscaping project along Alexandra Parade.
