Castaway Point Park Improvements
Improvements to Castaway Point Park are complete. The park is now open. Improvements to the park include a pervious asphalt road and driveway setback from the water, pervious handicap parking spaces, crushed coquina parking spaces, storm water retention facilities, paved pathways connecting the park to U.S.-1 and Castaway Cove Beach, L.E.D. pedestrian and pier lighting, a pavilion, recycled plastic park benches and trash receptacles, and native landscaping. The BCRA was awarded a $60,000 Florida Coastal Management Program grant to help provide access improvements and reduce stormwater pollution at the park.
