The Lee County Commissioners voted today to re-open County-controlled public beaches effective Wednesday, April 29, 2020. This impacts the beach from Crescent Beach Park including Lynn Hall Memorial Park (pier) northward and Bowditch Point Park.
However, beach and accesses controlled by the Town of Fort Myers Beach (from Crescent Beach Park south to Big Carlos Pass Bridge) remain open from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. for residents’ exercise only. Beach access parking controlled by the Town remains closed. Enforcement of parking and beach access violations will be in effect.
The Town’s parks, recreation and cultural facilities, as well as Town Hall, remain closed until at least Friday, May 1, 2020, when Town Council is scheduled to meet for further discussion on beach openings and related topics.
When the Lee County beaches open tomorrow, the general public is advised to stay in and north of Crescent Beach Park.
