The SIB Gateway Park is aptly named, situated at the City’s southern terminus, and bounded by major streets on three sides. Conceived as a joint venture between the City and condominium developer with property facing the parcel, the park will provide a large green recreational space and parking garage for local use and beach parking. The park’s design recalls the simple elegance of classic urban parks, with wide crushed gravel pathways lined by Live Oaks, and sloped lawns for people watching and picnicking. The central lawn begins to “roll” as it extends eastward, much like the ocean beyond. Key elements include a large water wall and participatory fountain, citrus grove, playground, and outdoor stage for programming events.
