Judge’s Bay to receive much needed facelift.
Stage 2 of Judge’s Bay scheduled upgrade will start in mid 2011. The facelift includes improved pedestrian access, better facilities, new paving, public seating and fixtures. A new paved plaza will extend along the beachfront promenade and will include play features, seats, tables and a new toilet / changing room building (reminiscent of old boat-sheds). Pohutukawa trees in the area have already been pruned as to enhance the views and the beach has been re-sanded.
A jetty and floating pontoon will also be installed, evocative of the boat landing structures located at Judge’s Bay 100 years ago. Terraced steps at the western slope of Judge’s Bay Reserve will create strong visual connections from the beachfront to the Reserve and the historic St Stephens Church. New signage and an artwork will also be installed. The Judge’s facelift should be complete by November 2011 and we can’t wait to be there for the big reveal.
