Phase one of the Acton Waterfront project was the creation of Henry Rolland Park and construction of the first 150 metres of boardwalk. Commenced in November 2016 and opened to the public in April 2018, the area had been underused for many years and was dominated by asphalt car parks. It is now a high-quality public space that is already attracting high usage as a popular lakeside location.
Local, civil infrastructure specialist firm, Chincivil was engaged by the Territory to undertake the work.
