Batts Rock gets a fresh look
A SECTION of Batts Rock, St Michael, is taking on an eye-catching look.
An area leading from the hillside down to the shoreline is being landscaped and has enhanced the environmental appeal.
This forms part of the old roadway, which is expected to be closed off for property development in the area. A new public road is being built while the new footpath will still allow pedestrian access from the existing entrance.
Architects for the project are Gillespie & Steel and a check with them yesterday indicated that the individual involved in that project, Christian Marshall, was out of the island. Talma Mill Studios is responsible for the landscaping.
Most of the ruins of what was many years ago a popular beachfront nightclub are no longer there amongst the trees.
Batts Rock is a designated public beach and has picnic benches, shower and changing facilities and a small children’s playground. It adjoins Paradise Beach, site of the stalled Four Seasons Project. (ES)
