FENCES continue to come down at Scarborough foreshore as the two-year redevelopment project nears completion.
Scarborough Square has opened on The Esplanade, providing a plaza with shade and seating.
The area surrounding the iconic clocktower is also open to pedestrians and represents a focal point of the redevelopment.
The Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority’s master plan describes Scarborough Square as creating a “village atmosphere” with a mix of beachfront cafes, restaurants, bars and shops protected from prevailing south-westerly winds.
It has space for markets, food trucks and events, and aims to provide a “retreat from the beach”.
Construction is winding up on the playground and Snake Pit area with skate park, which are expected to open soon.
