Fort Myers Beach Local Blogger July 10th 2017


Lovers Key Visitor Center Receives Funding
Under One Roof
Lovers Key State Park, just off the southern tip of Fort Myers Beach, is the second-most visited state park in Florida, averaging one million visitors annually, but it does so without a single indoor venue for exhibits, classrooms, meetings and similar opportunities. That will soon change, though, as its Friends Of Lovers Key (FOLKS) volunteer group recently spearheaded a legislative effort to garner $4 million to construct a Visitor Center, estimated to begin in 2018 and be complete in 2019. “The process actually began last year,” explained Mark Generales, a FOLKS volunteer. “The Florida Legislature appropriated $450,000 for architects and engineers and permitting, then the remaining $3.55 million this year for the construction, to tell Southwest Florida’s ecological story. We want visitors to learn the park’s history, background, and environment, as so many just come to Lovers Key to go to its spectacular beaches, but they miss out on knowing about its various habitats.”  FULL STORY
