an activated waterfront edge
Mackay Beachfront Master Plan is intended to provide an activated waterfront edge on the eastern side of the proposed City Centre PDA. It envisages a large lineal plaza connecting the waterfront park precinct to the future retail area to the west.
The plaza will be the central hub of the park, with cafes and avenues of shady trees and seating for everyday use. It will further activate the park when utilised for markets, food trucks and festivals.
