  • Construction of azobé hardwood surfacing along the watersports building
  • Construction of concrete access roads, concrete surfacing at the cafeteria, food paths, petanque playing fields and a beach volley pitch
  • Construction of a slipway, incl. a black-top access road

As far as 2004 Ghent Dredging started works at Gavers with the construction of a restricted swimming area, consisting of a sheet-pile wall and a concrete floor. On top of the sheet-piles a steel construction has been jointed to serve as a support of the timber bridge around the swimming area.
