Beach Park Harmonization & EDSA

The Beach Park Harmonization Project will create short- and long-term visions and strategy for enhancement of the seven key beach parks: North Beach, Main Beach, Seaside Park, Peters Point, Burney Park, Scott Road Access Point and the South Road Access. The final plan and design will provide harmonization amongst all seven beach parks and an overall vision for moving forward Amelia Island’s beach park amenities. Building on previous studies and existing guidelines, the Beach Harmonization Project aims to modernize and better equip these seven key parks to serve local communities as well as visitors.

The Beach Partnership

Complementing the Beach Park Harmonization is a partnership of experts in fields including environmental branding, tourism, wayfinding, parking and cultural heritage preservation. These partner projects are taking place in Nassau County and include a beach parking project by Walker Consultants, environmental branding by Dawson Associates, and the American Beach Cultural Heritage Experience project by Barth Associates.


Note: The beach park harmonization project does not address beach driving.
