North Shore Open Space Park Redevelopment:

meandering walkways and conservation areas

The City’s proposed design for the redevelopment of North Shore Open Space Park will be unveiled at next week’s Design Review Board meeting. According to David Martinez, Director of Capital Improvement Projects, the plan “takes all of [the park’s] fabulous features and enhances them.”
Spanning the area east of Collins from 79th to 87th Streets, the new park will include completion of the beachwalk and meandering walkways with defined conservation areas. Martinez says these areas “are one of the salient features of the park where the sea grapes and some of those species are growing."
Among the other improvements: turtle-friendly pedestrian lighting to enhance security and safety, “distinguishable, inviting entrances along Collins Avenue” and pedestrian beach access points, BBQ areas, and a green buffer for the Maintenance/Ocean Rescue facility.

The plan will be presented at the Design Review Board, Tuesday, January 3rd, City Hall, 1700 Convention Center Drive, Commission Chambers. The meeting begins at 8:30 am and this is item #9.
