A BEACH access road in Eglinton will open this weekend as part of the first stage of a $4 million foreshore development project.
Developer Stockland plans to open the Amberton estate beach access road, extending Viridian Boulevard, on Saturday, July 28.
It will include a 67-bay car park and temporary path to walk to the beach.
Future work in the first stage will include a cafe and bar, playground and stairway to the beach.
Stockland WA general manager Col Dutton said construction of the road to the coast, beach car park and pedestrian access took six months to complete and was eagerly awaited by local residents.
“We’re providing a convenient new destination for local families to enjoy a day out and explore the breathtaking stretch of coastline,” he said.
“Work on the beachside playground and stairs is on track to be completed by November.”
The playground area will include three outdoor showers, a barbecue and shelter, seating and a separate enclosed playground for toddlers.
The cafe is expected to be built by mid-2019 and the developer opened skate and dog parks last month June.
Residents can take part in a free Live Life Get Active program, including cross-training, boxing and yoga sessions during school terms, as well as free dog training sessions run with RSPCA.
