Buckroe Beach Boardwalk Survey

Please view the different design posters, give feedback on design options with the provided stickers, and share your thoughts with the project team by taking our survey.

Page descriptions:

  • Page 1 – For purposes of discussing the renovation and repairs to the boardwalk, it will be discussed in three sections: Northern Section, Buckroe Park Section, and the Southern/Extension Section.

  • Page 2 – Here you see possible types of amenities to be placed at the beach.  We would like to learn more about your preference.  On the survey, please let us know your thoughts.

  • Page 3 – Examples of plantings are shown here.  This selection builds upon the existing plantings found within the park.

  • Page 4 – Here you see possible types of designs for the seawall.  We would like to learn more about your preference.  On the survey, please let us know your thoughts

  • Page 5 – One possible component of the rehabilitation is to raise the existing seawall. It is currently 2’ high.  The maximum for Increasing the height will be 3’9” (total).  The increase will provide additional storm protection and help keep sand off of the boardwalk.  Here you may see renderings of the seawall at an increased height.  

  • Page 6 – The northern section  - in front of the condos – is shown here.  The top image shows smaller scale repair work, which includes repairing the existing planter and making necessary surface repairs.  The bottom image shows a more comprehensive reconstruction of the plants and a resurfacing of the boardwalk. All segments include wall rehab, ADA access improvements, and upgraded lighting.

  • Page 7 – Top image: At present, there are two ADA access points on the boardwalk.  This proposal includes ADA access ramps every 200’  - for a total of 16 ramps – to facilitate access to the beach for those of all ages and abilities. Bottom image: this shows a rehabilitation of the Buckroe Park section, which includes improving the planters. All segments include wall rehab, ADA access improvements, and upgraded lighting.

  • Page 8 & 9 – It is proposed to extend the boardwalk from Pt Comfort Ave to the James T. Wilson fishing pier.  The top images show the existing conditions.  The lower images show the extension of the boardwalk in a fashion similar to the existing boardwalk.  If the seawall remains in its current location, the boardwalk in this section will be approximately 10’ -12’ wide.  Should we reconstruct the seawall to gain a wider boardwalk (approximately 18’ wide), it will be necessary to take approximately 10’ of the beach. The seawall would only be moved in this section. All segments include wall rehab, ADA access improvements, and upgraded lighting.
