In the 1980s the then derelict Penarth Dock was acquired by the Vale of Glamorgan Council  for redevelopment as a waterfront residential centre and marina. Following the marina development Penarth witnessed one of the major civil engineering feats of the late 20th century with the construction of a barrage between South Cardiff and Penarth thus creating a 500-acre freshwater lake permanently covering the tidal mud flats and extending up the Rivers Ely and Taff into the centre of Cardiff. The marina now provides a safe berth for resident or visiting craft and has 24 hour access via the Cardiff Bay Barrage.
