Activities & Attractions that Connect People to the Sea

A sustainable urban waterfront is comprised of many elements. In most situations, a wide range of commercial activities support the cost of docks and other access infrastructure within a waterfront municipality. From tourism and transportation to commercial fishing and water-dependent industrial, each element contributes to the vitality of an active and sustainable urban shoreline. UPWA partners with individuals and organizations to initiate projects and programs that inspire the activation of urban waterfront spaces.
