Another Sign of Post-Ian Progress


The park at the base of the Matanzas Pass Bridge is owned by Lee County and was closed after Hurricane Ian. Lee County, removed the chain link fence surrounding the pool and opened the park back up this past Friday.

The park is adjacent to Margaritaville on the Gulf side of Estero Bouelvard. Before Hurricance Ian the park included picnic tables, a volleyball court and bathroom trailers.
After the storm the land was being used to sift debris from sand that was placed back on the beach.

The County fenced Crescent Beach Park because more time was needed to remove glass pieces from the sand.

Grass and new palm trees now surrounds the sand on the Estero Boulevard side of the park and a new wooden post fence was installed around the park. A mobile restroom will also be added near the Margaritaville side of the park.

No decision has been made as to what might be added back to the park. We’ve heard everything from leaving it a beach to constructing a covered stage for music and other events.
