Phase one was inclusive of; cleaning up of the Bayside in the Gwan Rivere area and the pruning of trees and plants.

This zone will be transformed into a bar setting arena for locals and visitors.

Apart from the bar setting, Mr. Jacob said there will also be a bio park, where individuals can partake in our traditional dances. He believes that it is an important project for Grand Bay, because it will present the community as a premiere for eco-tourism development.

He said, that the project is well timed with Grand Bay’s Reunion 2014, and by July of next year, the bio park will officially open.

Out of the 7 components of the project, the chief one is, “the breaking of Zaman”.

Grand Bay is the headquarters for culture in Dominica he said, and as a result, a local security firm will be assisting with the Bayfront once completed, to secure the site as well as the people.
