Architecture: Jack Evans Boat Harbour, Tweed Heads

September 20, 2011

ASPECT Studios revitalise a waterfront park and foreshore area to deliver a new civic space to Tweed Heads.

The design work by ASPECT Studios on stage one of the revitalisation of Jack Evans Boat Harbour enriches the existing park experience to become a unique civic place of waterfront leisure. The design strongly promotes physical activity by providing a range of public domain elements such as extensive walkways and cycleways. Steps, ramps for those with physical challenges, and unique waterfront conditions allow access to the water’s edge for swimming and boating.

The area is also a major tourist attraction for Tweed Heads, on the Queensland and New South Wales border. It is an exciting foreshore and parklands redevelopment project which will provide the impetus for the critical economic revitalisation of Tweed Heads.

The park marks the transition between the river and the sea, framing the ever-shifting inter-tidal zone in a landscape which is in a constant state of change. The design creates a series of distinct experiences with the water: a new beach, beach deck, a rocky headland, urban pier, boardwalk, water amphitheatre, swimming areas, fishing points and boating. The redevelopment will create a public space conducive to increased local and visitor recreational use, whilst protecting and promoting the natural beauty and environment of the area.
