Parking limited at Gumbo Limbo

The parking lot in front of the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is closed until the spring while three ADA-compliant parking spaces are created and a ramp between them and the center is built. ‘This is a big construction project with many moving parts,’ Nature Center Manager Leanne Welch said. The work includes adjusting the slope of the parking lot and creating crosswalks. The center’s front and side doors are being replaced with wider, accessible doors, and both restrooms will be completely renovated. A trailer restroom is available outside. Some parking spaces at Red Reef West, just south of the center, have been designated as ‘Reserved for Gumbo Limbo.’ At the same time, work continues on rebuilding the 40-foot-tall observation tower and its new multilevel access ramp. ‘We are hopeful that we can celebrate the completion of all of the projects at the same time in the spring,’ Welch said.
