The Miami Beach boardwalk will soon extend its walkway 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 its six million dollar makeover with the new beach walk.
Miami Beach Boardwalk Completion
By the end of this year, we will have the walkway along the entire coastline of Miami Beach. People can start in South Pointe and walk, run, jog, bike & rollerblade all the way down to North Beaches open space park. Approximately 77+ blocks of entertaining sunshine & exercise are 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.” – Miami Beach Mayor Matti Herrera Bower.
This has been 10 years in the making. Local developers like Eric Sheppard have donated funds ($300,000) to make the finished walkway a reality. Sheppard is just finishing up his multi-million dollar Carillon development. Once completed, this will boast the largest fitness spa facility on the East Coast. This new walkway extension will bring 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.
Miami’s Healthy Attractions
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 about being surrounded by fitness-minded people. With tropical weather year-round, we do have the ultimate in living the healthy lifestyle so greatly missed by most Americans. Regularly, you’ll find me rollerblading or skateboarding down South Beach’s oceanfront walkway. Now we will soon be able to enjoy the entire coastline with bikers, walkers, runners, and the in-between moving up & down the Miami Beach coastline!
From the bikini beach babes to the Grandpas in black knee-high socks, we not only have America’s Cleanest City (by Forbes) but also the ideal environment for fitness and health, all available for you to enjoy.
