Miami Beach Completes 7-Mile Beachwalk, Now Runs Entire Length Of City

You can now run, walk and bike on a newly completed beachwalk that spans the entire length of the city of Miami Beach, after the final piece opened last week.

The beachwalk now runs a total uninterrupted length of 7 miles, from South Pointe Park at the southern tip of the city, to 87th Terrace at the northern border with Surfside.

Contractors opened the final half-mile stretch to the public just before Memorial Day, between 79th Street to 87th Terrace.

Last year, the city completed the beachwalk between 24th and 45th streets, replacing the wooden boardwalk. All other segments of the beachwalk were already complete.

“Needs” to be connected??

What if it isn’t?
No one will live there?
No banks will operate?
The Four Seasons will leave?

If you were to say, you want the Baywalk in Brickell to connect in the one place that it isn’t connected now….I would agree with you emphatically.

It already goes from 87th Street past Bal Harbour up to Haulover Beach

Miami should require the Genting (old Miami Herald) property to do their piece & connect with Ferré Park.

Well we need state elected officials and Florida state residences to get out of Genting’s way and let them build their Resort Casino there in Miami and then we’ll see how it turns out.

Genting’s financial situation is what’s in the way.

Do some research on the way voting takes place in Florida for gambling to happen anywhere outside of reservations and get back with what you learned.

Bicentennial Park. Ken Russell (and Marc Sarnoff before him) failed to get the Miami waterfront connected. And the Miami River needs connections too…

I think this idea of a boardwalk in front of the beach is fantastic. Every effort should be made to do this along the entire shore of Biscayne Bay and the Miami River. Blocked sections are incompatible with what is expected of Miami, a world-class tourist city. As an example, I cite that stretch in front of the Ambassador’s four buildings on Brickell Bay Dr and that one under the Brickell Avenue Bridge. Here, it’s even worse, as both banks are blocked, opposite the Epic and across the river, at Brickell Point opposite the three towers of the Icon/W Hotel.

The Northside bank under Brickell Bridge isn’t blocked.
Are you thinking of the Northside of Miami Ave Bridge? (The One River Point site)

That’s not the part I was referring to. On the north bank of the Miami River (Downtowm side), do not cross under the bridge towards Epic towards the Hyatt/Convention Center. Likewise, on the south bank (Brickell side), it is also not possible to cross under the bridge towards Brickell Point Park towards the land where the Capital Grille is located and where Baccarat will be built. On both sides of the river, there are locked fences.

Agree that the Marina in front of Four Ambassadors does not need to be so secure.

The gates used to be open for a time, it’s a shame that the Four Ambassadors is such a bad and ugly neighbor!

EPIC liked to pretend the riverwalk was private property and subtly discouraged pedestrian traffic. Hope that improves when the Aston Martin tower is completed.

Let’s get rid of joe carollo and all other dinosaurs so we can advance in getting baywalk, River walk, real, safe bike lanes, and functional/efficient/effective mass transit

No more Cavas or Russells. We need people who support Metrorail extensions and shade trees, while not going on woke crusades to ban plastic straws and demonize police.

Get rid of Ken Russell now. In fact, he submitted his resignation BUT it does not take effect immediately.

The only ban wanted is getting rid of daily motor bike rentals in the city. No one is advocating getting rid of bicycles.
