Crow Island beach park development gets under way with WB assistance

Crow Island in Mattakkuliya, a landscape similar to that in the Eastern coast with a slum environment, thin lanes tightly packed with dwellings, Hindu kovils and churches is to be developed into a public recreational facility under the Metro Colombo Urba Development Programme (MCUDP) with World Bank assistance next year.
The total cost for the Crow Island beach park project is in the region of Rs. 275.78 million. The Crow Island is a neglected strip of land of about five acres located close to the Kelani river mouth. A team of architects and experts on beachfront development projects in the Asia–Pacific region has been entrusted with the task of designing the park for the benefit of people of all ages and all walks of life living particularly in the Colombo North region.
