gulf shores public beach improvements

Work will begin soon to transform Gulf Place, the city of Gulf Shores' most iconic stretch of beachfront and main public beach area. A revitalization project will provide more seating and shade, expanded parking, coastal landscaping and more.

City Of Gulf Shores To Revitalize Main Public Beach Area

The City of Gulf Shores is moving forward with plans to transform Gulf Place, the city's most iconic stretch of beachfront and main public beach area.

The $15 million Gulf Place Revitalization Project is a linchpin objective of the Small Town, Big Beach Vision 2025 for Sustainability and the result of years of master planning and public input.

The project will be completed in phases over the next few years and will employ sustainable, low-impact designs to provide a more welcoming, accessible, pedestrian and bike-friendly environment for residents and visitors to enjoy. Work is set to begin to prepare the site on Sept. 6.

"This project will rejuvenate the face of our community and will provide enhanced opportunities to enjoy our entire half-mile of public beachfront year-round," said Mayor Robert Craft. "We are excited to be able to make such a significant investment into the quality of life of our residents, the experience of our visitors and the future of Gulf Shores."

Improvements for Phase I will include: 

  •  Enhanced and expanded public parking
  •  20 ft. wide beachfront boardwalk
  •  Seating and shade structures
  •  Renovated public restroom facilities
  •  New Beach Safety Headquarters
  •  Extensive natural/coastal landscape
A two- or three-bedroom condo in Gulf Shores is a great place to stay and enjoy the public beach area and all the attractions the city has to offer.
