Frankston Pier Upgrades
Work is underway to repair and improve Frankston Pier. Once complete, the pier will provide improved public access out onto the bay, views of Frankston waterfront and the city skyline and a new disability compliant ramp to a lower landing.
July 2020 - Frankston Pier is temporarily closed to allow for repair works to be completed. The pier will remain closed until mid-August to allow for 62 piles to be driven along the main section of the pier. Parks Victoria recognises that Frankston Pier is an important focal point and recreational space for the local community and is working to minimise the impact of the works and associated closure.
