Innerarity Point Park Groundbreaking Ceremony

May 4, 2018

 

 

 

A groundbreaking ceremony was held on May 3rd with Escambia County, The Trust for Public Land, and the Florida Department of Environmnetal Protection for the groundbreaking of Escambia County's newest recreational facility, Innerarity Point Park.  ReliantSouth Construction Group will be serving as the Construction Manager on this exciting project that will enhance outdoor recreational opportunities for the community.

 

"The park is the result of multiple organizations working together to enhance the public's access to nearby natural resources and complement the adjacent Galvez Boat Ramp.  The park will feature an open space for community gatherings, ADA accessible boardwalk, dock large enough for fishing and paddle craft launch, large and small capacity covered pavilions with grills, two playgrounds, restrooms with rinse off areas and a pervious concrete parking area with parking for at least 50 vehicles.  Additionally, invasive species will be removed and native shoreline vegetation will be planted. 

 

The $7.4 million project included the acquisition of a 3.38 acre parcel with 265 linear feet of frontage along the Intracoastal Waterway, which flows between Innerarity Point and Perdido Key out to Perdido Bay and is being funded through Early Restoration Natural Resources Damage Assessment, or NRDA, funding from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

 

The park is part of the Florida Coastal Access Project, which will facilitate the creation of five new parks in Panhandle counties using $45 million in Deepwater Horizon spill early restoration funds. The Trust for Public Land managed the land acquisition and is overseeing the design, permitting and construction of the park. Once complete, they will donate the park to the Escambia County. Grant agreements with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection will include funding to cover 10-year budgets for operation and maintenance activities of the park."
