Miami Beach will soon have it’s walkway extended North covering the entire coastline!
That’s right, from South Point Park all the way to the open space park in North Beach. With the major draw to Miami being the sand & Atlantic ocean, just a few feet away are the stretches of pedestrian friendly walkways that include the winding ocean walk in South Beach, the mid island boardwalk, and now the North Beach area finishing off it’s six million dollar makeover with the new beach walk.
By the end of this year
you will have the walkway along the entire coastline of Miami Beach. People can start in South Pointe and walk, run, jog, bike & roller blade all the way down to North Beaches open space park. Approximately 77+ blocks of entertaining sunshine & exercise readily available.
“We are trying to get all the beach like this so people can start in South Pointe and walk all the way to the end to the open space park in North Beach,” said Miami Beach Mayor Matti Herrera Bower.
This has been 10 years in the making with local developers like Eric Sheppard, donating funds ($300,000) to make the finished walkway a reality. Sheppard is just finishing up his multi million dollar Canyon Ranch development. Once completed, this will boast the largest fitness spa facility on the East Coast. This new walkway extension will be bringing a healthy lifestyle to the average Joe.
“This is the whole lifeblood of the entire Miami Beach. I call it the Miami Beach connection… this enables us to connect all of Miami Beach through this boardwalk. We’ve invested the money. We hope people invest their time and their brain knowledge to really capitalize and embrace and utilize the health and fitness and utilize this beautiful boardwalk because it’s going to change their life,” said Sheppard.
One of the main reasons I was drawn to Miami Beach real estate back in January of 2001 was the fitness minded people & healthy lifestyle so abundant here. I’ve always been adamant on being surrounded by fitness minded people and with tropical weather year round, we do have the ultimate in living the healthy lifestyle so greatly missed by the majority of Americans. On a regular basis, you’ll find me rollerblading or skateboarding down South Beach’s oceanfront walkway. Now we will soon have the ability to enjoy the entire coastline with bikers, walkers, runners and the in between moving up & down the Miami Beach coastline!
