Fort Lauderdale - The renovation of the Fort Lauderdale Beach Park parking lot has begun. Last week, the City began demolition of the parking lot at 1100 Seabreeze Boulevard as part of a 1-year project that will include improved access, ADA enhancements, and beautification of the parking area.
Under the renovation plan, the City will place utilities under ground. The existing retaining wall will be replaced with a new wave wall that will match the existing wall located north of the park. Trees will be setback from A1A as required by the Florida Department of Transportation. The existing sidewalk will be widened from seven feet to 13 feet and turtle compliant lighting will be installed.
Landscaping plans include 104 new Coconut Palms, 12 relocated Sabal Palms, 45 new Green Buttonwood Trees, seven Thatch Palm Trees as well as ground cover, shrubs and a decorative fence.
The parking lot will be milled and resurfaced in phases for the purpose of accommodating parking customers during much of the construction project.
While the work is being completed, convenient barrier island parking alternatives include the following:
- "E Lot" on East Las Olas Circle (Located below the Las Olas Boulevard bridge)
- "Oceanside Lot" at 400 Seabreeze Boulevard (A1A & E Las Olas Boulevard)
- "R Lot" at 3031 Sebastian Street (A1A at Sebastian Street)
- "U Lot" at SE 5 Street & A1A (Adjacent to Alexander Park, across from the Swimming Hall of Fame)
Street parking is also available at several locations.
