THE seabreeze walkway and gardens at the Queen Elizabeth Drive have been officially opened.

The opening on Wednesday afternoon was done by Minister for Local Government, Urban Development, Housing and Environment Colonel Samuela Saumatua.

The occasion also marked the new slogan of the Suva City Council, "My Suva".

Suva City Council's special administrator Chandu Umaria said the new gardens, seats, turfing, bure, drainage, new lights and landscaping had greatly enhanced the aesthetic image.

"It has taken it to greater heights to compare with the best in other developed cities in the world," he said.

Mr Umaria said the council would continue work on the walkway from Fringing Reef restaurant to Suva Point.

"We will have more bure, gardens, tables, seats, a new public convenience with showers, food kiosks, and a podium for entertainers and a mini market for fruits," he said.

Mr Umaria said people needed to utilise the facilities in a proper manner for the betterment in terms of leisure, enjoyment, relaxation and health benefit.

"I hope that our people will take pride in this landmark achievement of the new seabreeze walkway and gardens."

Mr Umaria said the council would invite stakeholders and interested business people to operate water sports in the area.
