Rowell’s Waterfront Park
Say hello to one of the Florida Keys newest city parks! I’ve passed this for the last two years while being posted as a future park to its renovation period waiting for it to open. Now many months after its opening, I’m finally able to stop by and check it out for you.
Here’s the first hand low-down: an awesome view of the neighbor’s pier-end gazebos, appears to be a swimming area, very rocky fossil-laden uneven dangerous jetty that I chose NOT to risk walking on, bring your own picnic supplies of chairs and folding table, and last but not least three port-o-potties! Though I wish I could say more and that it was packed with beachgoers… I was in fact the ONLY one there on a Saturday. I don’t know for sure, but I’d guess that they might not be 100% done with renovating this newest city asset.
You can find Rowell’s Waterfront Park on US-1 at Mile Marker 104.6 bayside. It appears to be FREE to the public seeing no fee schedule… besides, would you pay for a park that had ONLY port-o-potties! **As the time of this photo the park wasn’t done… maybe it it now!**
