Gardner’s Park gets an early Christmas present
“Good things come to those who wait” goes the saying, and the business owners and residents of Gardner’s Park are soon to be rewarded for their patience. Located just east of the Downtown River District of Fort Myers, Gardner’s Park is bordered by Fowler Street to the west, Evans Street to the east, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard to the south and the Caloosahatchee River to the north. When the Fort Myers Community Redevelopment Agency initiated a planning effort to redevelop this older, established neighborhood in the fall of 2014, Ensite took its lead from the community. Now, the city has given the go-ahead, as the Fort Myers News Press recently announced.
EnSite looks forward to continuing to work with the community to honor the historic character of Gardner’s Park while instituting greater connectivity, walkability and smart development. This neighborhood is bound to become a destination for arts and events, fostering a livelier, safer, more prosperous future.
