TIN CITY BOARDWALK RESTORATION COMPLETE

The historic Tin City Waterfront boardwalk, where Pure Florida is docked, has reopened after damage from Hurricane Irma forced its closure. Turrell, Hall and Associates assisted in the restoration.

The updated boardwalk includes more user-friendly walkways, covered seating, and a pedestrian connection under U.S. 41, allowing people to walk along the waterfront uninterrupted between Tin City, Bayfront and beyond.

The restoration project took 18 months of work since the seawall that supports the boardwalk and restaurants was severely damaged in the storm and needed to be rebuilt. The new boardwalk is made from the dense hardwood Ipe, the same wood used at the Naples City Dock, Naples Pier and the Gordon River Greenway.
