Confederation Basin Promenade project to be launched at upcoming public engagement session

June 10, 2021

On Monday, June 21, join City staff and a specialized consulting team to learn about the Confederation Basin Promenade project. Ranked #5 in the Waterfront Master Plan, the Confederation Basin Promenade is proposed to be a new accessible walkway and public space experience built on the existing stone breakwall that shelters Flora MacDonald Confederation Basin.

During an interactive engagement session, residents will be introduced to the project and learn about the breakwater, wave conditions and preliminary ideas for the walkway, seating, lighting and a swimming opportunity. Residents will also have an opportunity to share their thoughts and provide feedback on the project.

Get Involved, Kingston!
