The peninsula has been reimagined, creating more space for public recreation. Existing fencing that blocked public access to that side of the marina will be removed. New features will include landscaping, a wide promenade and other key elements drawing people to the tip of the peninsula to enjoy awe-inspiring views across the bay towards St Kilda and Williamstown, enjoy a coffee or other activities.
With the new concept design securing the marina operations to a controlled area on the western edge, the iconic Beacon will be able to be used as a meeting place, for hosting events and general enjoyment, and will be a key feature for a new park area, Beacon Park.
Through opening up this area and creating Beacon Park, an extended stretch of beach along the foreshore is proposed and will be accessible to the public. The proposed sandy beach stretching 500 metres will provide a range of new waterfront activities for the public.
A new Centre for Boating included as part of the new dry storage building will offer a range of services for boaters and particularly for boat storage lease holders.
A small kiosk will be located at the tip of the peninsula to provide refreshments for public enjoying the spectacular views.
Family friendly amenities will be integrated into the Centre for Boating to service visitors to Beacon Park and boaters needing a longer stay and time away from the boat.
