The construction of of an 18-hole adventure golf course and a children’s outdoor play area has started on Redcar’s seafront today, Tuesday 20 September.
The golf course will be based on a “penguin adventure” theme and sit alongside the quality play area based on a nautical theme. The eastern side of Majuba Road car park and part of the demolished buildings site will see new grassed areas, landscaping, lighting, and a re-modelled carpark.
This is ‘Phase 1’ of a wider scheme to regenerate the seafront area in Coatham. It is envisaged future phases of the scheme will include the Coatham Activity Hub, a facility hosting sports and coastal events, such as windsurfing, kiteboarding, horse riding ad yoga.
Construction is already underway for the 100-space car park on the former Coatham Bowl site and plans are in place for a hotel and further public realm improvements.
The works on the golf course and play area will be carried out by Seymour Civil Engineering and will take approximately six months. The public can expect to use the facilities in spring 2023.
The adventure golf and play area forms part of the £3million “TVCA Welcome to Redcar” fund allocated to the Coatham projects.
Cllr Chris Gallacher, Cabinet Member for Economic Growth at Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, said:
“These exciting plans will transform the seafront into a family destination for activities and provide a wonderful area where families can spend some quality together.
“I’m pleased that progress is being made and residents will soon see a significant improvement to the area, which, with our stunning coastline, and it being so close to the town centre, will become a great place to visit.”
