The beach area and playground at Harry Harris Park in Key Largo is closed for repairs and will remain closed until the construction of the beach jetty is completed. The boat ramp and ballfields will remain open.
“The County understands that any closure is an inconvenience and appreciates the community’s ongoing understanding and support to complete the work as safely and quickly as possible,” said Monroe County Parks and Beaches Director John Allen. “From talking with those who have been inquiring about Harry Harris Park repairs, the community is extremely appreciative this project is moving along.”
Harry Harris Park, Wilkinson’s Point, and the beach jetty had substantial damage from Hurricane Irma in 2017. The repairs are being done through Hurricane Irma repair grant funding.
The areas will likely be closed through the summer.
