See the final consolidated design for Richardson Beach improvements and offer input on the draft wayfinding strategy and family of signs at a Get Involved open house 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 23, at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour, 53 Yonge St. Children are welcome to attend and activity bags with colouring books, crayons and activities will be available.
"This is the third public consultation on improvements at Richardson Beach that propose better access to the water, increased gathering and seating areas and shoreline stabilization. Participants can also see the latest design for the waterfront wayfinding signs. We'll also offer an update on the Richardson Bathhouse renovations," says Neal Unsworth, manager, parks development.
Construction to implement the improvements is tentatively set for 2020 (depending on budget approval).
The creative waterfront wayfinding strategy outlines the design and location of signs, kiosks, pavement markers and other similar elements aimed at helping residents and visitors find and explore Kingston's beautiful waterfront.
Improving Richardson Beach was identified as a top priority in the City's CSLA 2017 National Award of Excellence-winning Waterfront Master Plan.
