North Rustico’s Seawalk Park includes building to house retail facilities, gateway piers, information centre
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.
