Construction on enhancements to the South Shell Park shoreline to improve access to the waterfront and the safety of the seawall is now complete. This work included removal of old steel and concrete structures, restoration and expansion of the shoreline, providing formal beach access, pathways and stairs. A lookout area and benches have also been added for visitors to enjoy.
A naturalization and tree planting plan is being implemented to replace trees that have been removed, increase canopy cover, add shade, improve biodiversity and provide habitat for migratory birds. This work will be completed in the fall when cooler temperatures offer optimal growing conditions. The tree planting will take 1-2 days to complete and will not require closure of the park.
