Lori Wilson Park is to be upgraded this year

Published on : Wednesday, April 5, 2017

Lori Wilson ParkLori Wilson Park located in Cocoa Beach will soon be transformed into “a world-class public space as discussion is on.” A separate stage area for events, an adventure playground, an education center, a food truck plaza, exercise and walking trails, development to the existing dog park, an extended boardwalk area, separate volleyball courts, displays about the Space Coast’s surfing heritage and upgraded showers and restroom areas among dozens of other ideas to be taken care of.

 
This upgrade program would be partially paid from Brevard County’s 5 percent Tourism Development Tax on hotel rooms and other short-term rentals. $3.5 million has been kept aside from the tax for projects at the 32.4-acre county park by the Brevard County Tourist Development Council. This week, three informal discussions were held related to Brevard County and Cocoa Beach officials as well as Cocoa Beach-area residents and consultants working on the project. Moreover, the officials of the Tourist Development Council’s Beach Improvement Committee talked about the issue in their meeting on Monday.

 
Eric Garvey, Space Coast Office of Tourism Executive Director said that in the coming weeks more meetings will be scheduled to gather more public participation. Consultants will create a report shortening the feedback after that. Subsequently tourism officials in terms of county and city will rank the top priorities for the park.
