Marine Parade Upgrades

We're making a number of upgrades to Marine Parade in Queenstown to improve access and connection with the lakefront. Following this work the existing Pump Station infrastructure and building will also be upgraded.

Project details

Upgrades on Marine Parade will begin on Monday 22 August, and aim to improve public access and connection between the town centre, lakefront and the Queenstown Gardens, and will include:

  • Brand new turf and drainage installed along the lakefront near the Memorial Archway, with a raised concrete path and new access points all helping to reduce any pooling water on rainy days

  • A new four-bay public toilet block installed with an accessible toilet and a nappy changing station

  • New furniture added on the lawn spaces. The upgrades will maximise useable space, providing a greatly improved area for people to gather and enjoy Queenstown's lakefront and events.

Once these upgrades are complete, a second stage of work will be undertaken to upgrade the wastewater pump station Marine Parade, improving resilience of the network, providing for emergency storage and reducing the likelihood of spills into the lake.
