Rowell’s Waterfront Park in Key Largo Opens Saturday

KEY LARGO – Rowell’s Waterfront Park – at mile marker 104.5 on the Overseas Highway in Key Largo – opens Saturday morning, becoming the County’s 20th park.

The 8-acre, kid- and dog-friendly park along Florida Bay has picnic tables, benches, a place to swim (at your own risk) and a launch for kayaks, canoes and standup paddleboards. It will be open seven days a week, from 7:30 a.m. to sunset. Admission is free.

The property was purchased in December 2013 for $5 million. Since then, the site has been used for events while the County works on a plan to develop it into a park the community will love.

A new scenic overlook is being designed with a $125,000 grant from the Florida Department of Transportation.
