The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - PROVINCE -

The grand open­ing of the new Seawalk Park took place Wed­nes­day night in North Rus­tico.

The $687,110 pro­ject in­cludes a new build­ing to house four re­tail fa­cil­i­ties, arched gate­ways, new wooden path­ways, gate­way piers, light­ing and ac­ces­si­ble park­ing. Other com­po­nents in­clude a sit­ting gar­den, a re­fur­bished play­ground, a new per­for­mance stage and a new in­for­ma­tion cen­tre with public wash­rooms. The pro­ject was cost shared by the town, province and fed­eral gov­ern­ments.

“With the ad­di­tion of the new ar­ti­san bou­tiques, a Welcome Cen­tre and up­grades to the park, the Town of North Rus­tico will surely be a hid­den trea­sure for visi­tors and res­i­dents alike,” said North Rus­tico Mayor Ann Kirk.

Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment and Tourism Min­is­ter Heath Mac­Don­ald said the pro­ject adds to the beau­ti­ful wa­ter­front.

“This pro­ject makes the wa­ter­front area more ap­peal­ing to res­i­dents and visi­tors by im­prov­ing the ameni­ties within Seawalk Park,” he said.
