The upgrading of some 60,000 square metres of the Macao peninsula’s waterfront into a multifunctional leisure area will begin by the end of this year, the Municipal Affairs Bureau (IAM) has announced.

Phase two of the South Shore Waterfront Green Promenade – as the large-scale project is known – stretches between Ponte Governador Nobre de Carvalho and Portas do Entendimento. The IAM said it aimed to complete the facility by late 2026.

The project was first announced in 2020 in a bid to beautify NAPE’s shoreline. Phase one, which starts at the Macao Science Centre and finishes at the Kun Iam Statue, opened in 2021.

Phase two’s features are set to include a 2.6-kilometre cycle track, and small-scale version of the Guia Circuit – where children and parents can pedal replica racing cars in a mock Grand Prix.

There will also be a skate park, fishing sites, a fitness area, space for ball sports, as well as a multipurpose square able to host the likes of performances and food festivals. The fitness area will include facilities for the elderly and differently abled, IAM said.

A new parking lot, able to accommodate motorcycles and about 80 cars, as well as buses, has been planned to service the promenade.
