Draft Park Development Concepts Have Been Posted


Draft design and development concepts for parks in the South Beach and Beverly Beach Management Units are now available to view ahead of July’s public meetings. Not all parks in the two management units were identified as having opportunities for development or redevelopment. Parks identified as having moderate or significant opportunities for development include Gleneden Beach, Fogarty Creek, Beverly Beach, Agate Beach, Yaquina Bay, South Beach, Seal Rock, Driftwood Beach, L. Presley & Vera C. Gill, and Beachside. Minor improvements are proposed at several of the other parks.
