THE revitalisation of Port MacDonnell's "waterfront precinct" will begin following a $585,000 windfall from the State Government.

The funding will help kick-start the $1.17m "stage one project", which is the first step in developing the township's public spaces by Grant District Council.

Stage one will focus on enhancing the foreshore area along Sea Parade by improving community facilities and providing linkages with other public spaces.

The project will include new interpretive signage and an information bay, as well as incorporating a plaza, a feature boardwalk, an improved walking and bike path, fitness stations, seating and shelters.
