The updated terraced area has been specifically designed so visitors can enjoy uninterrupted views across the lake. Additional anti slip inserts were used as this was a high traffic public area in wetlands.
The Centre had major refurbishment in 2012 to become a dedicated information and advice point, welcoming visitors and showcasing the wonderful wildlife of the reserve and its sister site at Lodmoor and of the wider borough.
The installation of ecodek® with additional anti-slip inserts has also increased the accessibility for visitors in wheelchairs or with prams.
Luke Phillips, Weymouth Wetlands information officer said: “The place is much more interactive and people will be able to get involved in all sorts of ways, whether it’s drawing their own pictures of the wildlife they’ve seen up on the blackboards, watching the nest cams and other footage, doing a spot of pond-dipping and finding out about ‘what lurks beneath’, or holding their own community events at the picnic area.”
