The marina also known as "Prince Arthur's Landing" is in the first phase of a 130 million dollar upgrade. This is a private–public coalition to make the park tourist friendly and provide a new tax base for the city. The private company is in the process of building two seven-story condos, an art gallery and a hotel with a water park onto the marina. The current area is being infilled by an average of 3acre between each pier to create enough room for the new buildings. One feature that is the mainstay for the public half of the construction is a splash pad–rink which will be accessible all year long by tourists and the public. The project has continued throughout the winter season and has completed the infill and other basic features. Tenders are currently out to start the construction of the public buildings and the condo–hotel should not be far behind. The project was funded by all levels of government through many different stimulus projects. Construction is to be completed in the fall of 2010 with minor landscaping being finished in 2011. Phase 2 is currently in the design phases which will see the area expanded onto an old industrial area. This area will hold a cruise ship docking and possibly a convention center and create a large area which will be accessible to everyone in the public. The costs are not yet known for a project like this. This project is expected to start in 2011 or 2012 and is part of a much larger project to eventually develop all 52 km of the city's waterfront.

One of my favorite place to spend time with friends. Cool and refreshing ambience with the view of sleeping giant. #full of positive vibes
Too many used needles for my liking but beautiful scenery.
