Works to upgrade Town Green will commence on Monday 15 May as part of major facelifts taking place in the Port Macquarie CBD, in accordance with the Town Centre Master Plan
Town Green East will be a hive of activity as Stage 1 works get underway to renovate and transform this popular central green space.
To allow for the implementation of the new design, existing trees will be removed and replaced with established trees, new turf and irrigations systems.
A new, wider 5 metre concrete path along the foreshore will provide a more comfortable and accessible link between Lady Nelson Wharf and the breakwall, and new lighting and seating will create a more usable and relaxing space.
The sea wall will also be rejuvenated, with 2,500 tonnes of new rock being brought in to protect the area. Stormwater upgrades will occur and the existing power and lighting will be replaced to make the area more appealing.
Pedestrian access between the Town Square and breakwall will be maintained, however the community are asked to exercise caution as the works take place.
Works are scheduled for completion in November this year, subject to favourable weather and unforeseen delays.
