With the Mangrove Trail nearing completion (a full post and update coming soon!), we’re deep into the design and implementation of the Sarasota Bayfront’s next park phase—Upland Park. Located inland and on the southern 10-acre edge of the 53-acre future completed park, this phase includes a concessions building and plaza, 30’ spiral shade structure, an event and performance lawn, beach, interpretive learning/seating decks, oval terrace, stage and intimate green, an ibis play sculpture, and paddle launch.
Sarasota’s Bayfront Park is a partnership between The Bay Sarasota, The City of Sarasota, Swift Construction, At Large Inc, and the Agency team, including: Sweet Sparkman, Kimley Horn, Sasaki, HLB Lighting, Studio Ummo, Engineering Matrix, Moffatt and Nichol, Cummins Cederberg, and Zaragunda. Construction is currently underway and will be completed in June 2022.
