Mark your calendars! Groundbreaking for the Egans Creek Park project will be at 4:30 PM on February 12. Benjamin Morrison of Cotner Associates, Inc. Architects has created this final layout design of the plans for the park.
We would like to extend special thanks to Parker Contracting for generously offering tremendous support for this project. They will be acting as the General Contractor for the redevelopment, as well as providing a large amount of the labor necessary to construct the new restroom facilities and public pavilions on-site.
Additionally, the following local companies will be participating in the project through generous contributions of materials and labor:
RPM Lumber, Coastal Current Electric, Bill Ross Plumbing, Myers Tractor Service, Coastal Landscapes, Nitelites, Burt Wright Construction, and Manzie and Drake Land Surveyors.
We appreciate all of the contributors, great and small, who have helped to make this project a reality!
Join us for the 2nd Annual Touch a Truck, 10 AM – 2 PM. Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted for our new project, the Egans Creek Redevelopment. For more information, see the event Facebook page.
The Slide into Spring Music and Craft Beer Festival was a smash hit for Fernandina Beach! Thanks to Jay Robertson of the Fernandina Beach Parks and Recreation Department and his associates for a great weekend!
Proceeds from the festival will help fund the Egans Creek Park Redevelopment and Expansion.
All proceeds support 8 Flags Playscapes’ new Egans Creek Redevelopment project and Nassau Humane Society. Tickets are on sale at Red Otter in Fernandina Beach and online at Eventbrite. Everybody come!
We are excited to announce that 8 Flags Playscapes has set into motion the redevelopment and enhancement of one of Fernandina Beach’s most underutilized park assets, Egans Creek Park. Following the overwhelming success of our work in the development of Pirate Playground, this private/public partnership between our organization and the City of Fernandina Beach will set a new precedent for the development of recreational facilities in our community.
A quarter-mile fitness trail with twelve exercise stations, a yoga garden, a fishing and birdwatching dock, and a kayak launch into Egans Creek will provide a wide array of activities to engage people of all interests, while maintaining our high standards for universal accessibility. Additionally, new restroom facilities, gazebos, and pavilion structures will provide the amenities necessary for the park to be functional as well as beautiful. Please check here regularly or visit our Facebook page, as more details will be released in the near future.
