The project to renovate the Malindi seafront, from the jetty to the Vasco Da Gama pillar, is a reality.
Work has begun and funds have been allocated, as confirmed by British experts who have drawn up an urban plan for the sustainable development of the town, taking into account the investment made by their government through the World Bank, which for Malindi amounts to 800 million shillings (just under 8 million euros). The first part of the work includes the reconstruction of the pier, a parking lot to access the park, two soccer fields, two volleyball courts, an area for small dining areas, a garden crossed by a promenade to the sea, public toilets, shops and offices. Some foundations of the structures have already been laid. This first phase, in the intentions of the contractor of the works and according to the agreements made with the City of Malindi, should last three months. The second section will include the fish market, a regulated beach soccer field, a children's recreation area and other facilities, including other public toilets. The entire area is already provided with bins for separate collection and lighting to make the entire promenade live in the evening. The project has been made public and also seen by architects and experts in the field, including foreigners who have given their positive opinion.
