Pelican Landing Completes Beach Renourishment Project
Posted by Benjamin Dona on Wednesday, February 19th, 2014 at 11:04am.
The extensive beach renourishment and stabilization project at Pelican Landing's private 34-acre Beach Park is now completed. The $2.8 million project on Big Hickory Island widened the park's Gulf of Mexico beachfront by as much as 250 feet and included the installation of concrete king-pile groins designed to stave off future erosion.
The Beach Park, rated by Pelican Landing and Colony residents as their favorite amenity, offers a private beach experience, complete with an elevated beach house with open decks, two open-air picnic pavilions, and a large screened pavilion with a deck. Additional amenities include shower/restroom facilities, umbrellas and chaises, two beach bocce ball courts, and a nature library. The park is accessible only by boat and Pelican Landing provides daily water shuttle service for residents and their guests.
Residents of Pelican Landing and The Colony use the Beach Park for swimming, sunning, shelling, bird-watching and fishing. During the winter season, the community association offers sunset and eco-tour cruises, beach walks, and concerts on the beach twice a week. Other Pelican Landing amenities (available to Colony residents also) include a canoe & kayak park, tennis center, and community center with fitness club.
With the $5.2 million Lee County renourishment project at Lover's Key and Bonita Beach expected to start this spring (completion by October), this entire stretch of Bonita Springs' beaches both north and south will be just like new again.
