Temporary Closure of Playground
Starting on January 6th, the existing play surface of The Water’s Edge playground, 402 S. Shoreline Blvd., will be removed, where a new concrete floor will be poured, followed by a new pour-in-place deck to be installed over the concrete. The playground is scheduled to reopen the second week of March 2020, weather permitting. The Water’s Edge will remain open for patrons to use the other park amenities such as the Islanders Pavilion, Vishal Bhagat Dog Park, and fitness area. Park visitors are asked to be aware of cautionary signage and temporary barriers at the work site to maintain public safety.

ABOUT THE WATER'S EDGE
Explore from Furman Avenue on the south end to Cooper’s Alley on the north end by the downtown marina. McGee Beach and the seawall are part of the attraction which runs along the shoreline. The 22.33-acre development has transformed this area to become the pearl along our crescent-shaped bay. The Vishal Bhagat Dog Park, multipurpose Islanders Pavilion, Playground and Fitness Area are new features of the existing McCaughan Park located on the south end. For the foodies, we now have the food court that will be home to food trucks serving up some tasty street food and refreshments. The Great Lawn, where the Memorial Coliseum once stood, will be the stage for special events of all kinds from concerts and festivals to runs and more. The gazebo is the focal point of the Old City Hall Park which was the location of the original city hall building that dates back to 1951. On the south end, Sherrill Veterans Memorial Park will continue to serve as the site to honor and celebrate our veterans and host military and patriotic events. Shade structures throughout and restrooms in two locations were also added to enhance the visitor experience.
On April 18, 2018, the ribbon cutting ceremony was held for The Water's Edge, our city's latest downtown bayfront park development. See News Release for more details about the development and ribbon-cutting event.
We invite you to come and fly a kite, explore the playground, ride your bike, relax on the beach, play soccer or basketball...the possibilities are endless!
