Work is almost complete on a new public square for Gloucester docks.
Shipton Square is part of a programme led by the Gloucester Heritage Urban Regeneration Company to create new jobs and attract investment to the city.
Part of the square, between Mariner's Church and the Barge Arm flats, is a large outdoor eating area with glass art works by a local artist.
It features paving made from Forest of Dean stone and has been designed as a pedestrianised area.
"With this public space completed and new businesses already established in the Barge Arm development, it is clear that the docks are now well on the way to becoming central to the future of Gloucester's economy," said Chris Foley, the South West RDA's head of regeneration for Gloucestershire and the West of England.
The square has been named after the adjacent Biddle and Shipton Warehouses which have been refurbished as part of the docks regeneration project to provide waterside flats and commercial ground floor units.
