There’s nothing like the striking and vast ocean views you can find around the Florida Keys. When you can get these views unobstructed they’re even better. Our amazing landscape is something which has long attracted people here and is worth protecting and retaining. Many of our parks help do just this. Monroe County parks are great places to discover and enjoy incredible scenic views, and soon there will be two more amazing spots to visit.
According to the recently published press release by Monroe County, Big Pine Key Community Park and Reynolds Street Pier in Key West are getting a boost to their already great ocean views. Soon we’ll be able to get closer to the waves around these areas with enhanced scenic vistas being built. The projects are being funded by an FDOT Grant to continue the ongoing expansion and updates to the Overseas Heritage Trail System.
A new path to an observation deck complete with LED lighting and informative signage will take visitors to where they can view the Gulf of Mexico in Big Pine Key Community Park. Don’t worry if you forget your binoculars, there will be viewing scopes installed as well. There’s also a concrete path connecting the vista point to the trail path, set down in concrete for easier accessibility.
The project at the Reynolds Street Pier is set to begin soon and will include a new pedestrian plaza, a shelter pavilion and fiberglass decking along the viewpoint where you can check out the ocean below. The new scenic vista will be a part of Higgs Beach, managed by Monroe County. In addition to the new construction the pier itself will see some improvements such as new stairs leading to the water as well as repairs to the existing pier and concrete trail connecting the pier to the street.
By October both new scenic vistas will be open and ready for residents and visitors to enjoy. Life’s good here.
