Grand Opening Ceremony Held For Beachwalk That Will Soon Connect Entire City Of Miami Beach

Miami Beach held a grand opening ceremony for over a mile of new beachwalk last month. Soon, the path will run the entire length of the city.

The newly opened walkway runs from 53rd street to 64th street, or around 6,000 feet long.

The path is between 15 and 25 feet wide, and allows for pedestrians and bicyclists. Only non-native plats were removed during construction, and turtle-friendly lighting was used.

A second phase is under construction and expected to open in March 2019. It will connect to the existing beachwalk and boardwalk at 46th street to the new 53rd street beachwalk (the wooden boardwalk will be torn down and rebuilt as a beachwalk this year).

When completed, a continuous beachwalk path will run from South Pointe Park in South Beach to the city’s northern boundary in North Beach at 87th Street.

Yes! A bay walk from 1st to 36th is needed!

Need a connected river walk along the eastern Miami river desperately! The river is significantly underutilized as is – it’s actually an embarrassment that you cannot walk a block or two continuously alongside this amazing natural resource running directly though the middle of the densest part of the city in the heart of Brickell!!

Putting palm trees in the middle of the path is kind of stupid!

Surprised it’s not mentioned that the beach walk is complete north of 87th all the way to Haulover Inlet. So, Once completed you will be able to bike/walk from inlet to inlet. Amazing. Good tourist attraction. Good living attraction and dune restoration all along the way! What a feat!

Whether by design or accident, the trees will discourage drunks or crackheads driving a car unimpeded down the path.

Looks good.

Unfortunately the newest segment on south beach is delayed because the paranoid police had to add a change order with 6 towers with cameras along the path.

It’s too bad they didn’t think of it sooner. But I’m inclined to believe it is for the safety of residents and visitors rather than paranoia.

Yes, a wall to mitigate sea level rise.

Well they already are, specifically seawalls to stop the water from flooding into our streets and killing people.
