SOUTHSHORE/APOLLO BEACH, FL – The Apollo Beach Waterway Improvement Group (ABWIG) helped fund the project for restoring the Apollo Beach Nature Park. The project started with the closing of the beach on November 10, 2014.
UPDATE: June 22, 2015: See photos of new beach
The new sand for the beach is coming from the dredging of the three channels in Apollo Beach that is estimated to make two more acres of beach front for the park.
The park will have seven rock barricades 6 to 8 feet tall and 40 feet long near the shoreline that will act as breakers to stop any future erosion.
The Apollo Beach Nature Preserve is slated to reopen Memorial Day 2015 if everything goes as planned.
