On the morning of July 25, county officials cut the ribbon to reopen Bert Winters Park’s boating area after being closed for construction since September 2017.
Major improvements include the renovation of existing boat ramps, three floating staging docks, 45 additional car/trailer parking spaces, and new ADA-compliant restroom facilities. Additional features include the enhancement of vehicular circulation, reconfiguration of existing parking spaces, storm-water management improvements, as well as associated site work and infrastructure.
Representatives of collaborating agencies, the Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND) and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), participated in the program.
“Residents are excited about utilizing the increased boater access to the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean,” said District 1 Commissioner Hal R. Valeche.
Bert Winters Park is located at 13425 Ellison Wilson Road in Juno Beach. The park is open daily from sunrise until sunset. A boat trailer parking permit is required. Annual permits may be purchased online at www.pbcparks.com. Daily permits will be available at Bert Winters Park using the onsite pay station.
