Bayfront Park

Longboat Key, FL

The Story

The Bayfront Park project consisted of the design and implementation of a Master Plan created to address the underutilization of the park.

Prior to renovations Bayfront Park was split into two unequal portions by an oddly shaped and rarely used baseball field – limiting circulation throughout the park and patron access to the waterfront.

Through community input a plan was developed aimed at connecting the two portions of the park and providing patrons with more passive recreation opportunities that take advantage of the park’s waterfront location. The design replaced the existing baseball field with a new multipurpose field with a covered pavilion that overlooks the water and newly added pedestrian bridge. Benches and Covered Picnic Tables were added along the waterfront to take full advantage of the parks unique location. Other park amenities include a Kayak launch, Playground, Fishing Pier, Basketball Court, Tennis Courts and Large Dog Park.
