BeachesMidland Beach and Franklin D. Roosevelt Boardwalk

The Midland Beach Entry Plaza will create a new public open space that will connect the community, boardwalk, promenade and beach. A decorative fountain with cascading waves of water will provide a focal point for the entrance to the beach promenade. In the central space of the plaza there will be a pattern of colored pavements with a series of interactive spray showers that can be enjoyed by children and adults alike. The entry plaza will also provide new drinking fountains, benches and colorful native plantings. A 104-space parking area, designed to include sustainable practices, will collect stormwater in a series of inter-connected rain gardens. The gardens will filter the water to an underground detention system that will recharge the groundwater. This work will take place on the land located at Father Capodanno Blvd & Seaview Ave in Midland Beach.
Anticipated Completion: Summer 2014
