National Night Out returns to the St. Augustine Beach Pier and Pier Park on Tuesday, October 3rd.

The annual National Night Out, a year-long community building campaign, returns to the St. Augustine Beach Pier next Tuesday, October 3rd from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.  The event being held by local law enforcement officials is designed to heighten crime prevention awareness, generate support for and participation in local anti-crime programs and strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships.  There will be lots of food, music, goodie bags, raffles and exhibits available and on display.  So come out and join us for some fun and community partnership.

The new beach access walkover and stairs are open to the public…

We want to begin this post by pointing out what a beautiful day it has been in St. Augustine Beach today and how great the Pier looked this morning with the calm ocean of less that 1′ of wave action.  You can see from the photo posted that it certainly looks nice out and will only get better as we move towards the weekend.

As many of you may know from visiting St. Augustine Beach over the past few months, the walk-over and stairs leading to the beach from the seawall were not open to the public and in need of repair from months of water damage and erosion to the beach.  Well, we would like to note that a much needed replacement of the stairs has been made and it appears to now be open to the public making beach access from the St. Augustine Beach Pier Park possible for all.  In addition to the walk-over and stairs replacement, they have expanded the width of the stairs to accommodate two way pedestrian traffic and a much greater flow of beach-goers.  We wish to thank St. Johns County for the work that has been done…

Repairs are underway for the St. Augustine Beach Pier

Well, the much needed repairs have started on our treasured St. Augustine Beach Pier.  The St. Johns County Commissioners approved $300,000 in repairs back in November for concrete reinforcement and repair of the pilings, as well as additional work to take place over the coming weeks.  The St. Augustine Beach Pier is expected to be closed to the public for the next month.  Not to worry though, it will be all ready to go in time for a warm Spring and sunny beach weather.

Read more about the project in the article titled Pier Renovations Underway, that was featured in the St. Augustine Record on Tuesday March 6th.

The feeling of Spring comes early to St. Augustine Beach this weekend…

Spring will feel like is it has arrived early this weekend as temperatures are expected to be in the high 70’s and low 80’s on Saturday and Sunday (Jan 21st and 22nd).  And though the beach ocean water temperature is only expected to be about 61 degrees, the moderate SW winds will keep the beach and Pier Park warm for visitors.  So come on out and enjoy fishing at the Pier, kids splashing at Splash Park at the Pier, or beach walking, sunbathing or any other beach activity at our beaches in St. Augustine Beach.
