Waterfront weekend, setting Clyde foreshore in motion
The Batemans Bay waterfront will see a weekend of art and music, activities and movies this month.
Eurobodalla Council is working with the community to stage the mini-festival to encourage people to meet along the Clyde Street foreshore on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 November.
Local groups and businesses will be running events over the weekend, including live bands, art, boxing and body sculpting classes.
Organisers say “On Saturday night, bring a picnic and your chair or blanket to the open-air cinema for a screening of The Greatest Showman, thanks to the Batemans Bay Soldiers Club.”
The waterfront weekend is part of Council’s Batemans Bay foreshore activation project.
Council staff will be there both days, between 9am and 4pm in the Francis Guy building, looking for responses to the ideas and options put forward earlier this year by businesses and the wider community to encourage better use of the waterfront.
Council have developed the main themes – more river access, more food options and a flow of people using the waterfront into the CBD.
Urban planners Inspiring Place have assisted with concepts and options and Council are now looking for feedback on these ideas before developing a masterplan and strategy. Council advise that there’s still plenty of opportunity for new ideas and are open to people thinking outside the square when it comes to using the waterfront and CBD in different ways.
