Construction on the estuary pool has kicked off on the eastern foreshore.
The circular, enclosed estuary pool with a floating jetty platform, gives a nod back to the days of the Mandurah baths and Robert Day Memorial Pools in the 1950s and 60s.
The construction will begin with the removal of town jetty, and the groyne before works on the upgraded beach area with ramp access, an upgraded jetty and the pool can begin.
The project also includes new boat parking facilities to drive tourism to Mandurah.
The construction on the pool is expected to be complete in 2021.
