The project includes a new public café with views over the Bay, new studio workspaces for artists and new life guard facilities. It will also include new public toilet facilities that will be fully accessible for the mobility impaired and most importantly a new jetty and changing areas that will provide access to the water's edge for swimmers and landing points for canoes and kayaks.
It is expected that the development will be substantially complete by late Spring 2020.
The project is funded directly by Dún Laoghaire County Council. Additional grant funding of €1.1m has been made available from the European Regional Development Fund under the Designated Urban Centre Grant Scheme (DUCGS).
