Peninsula Park will revitalize an otherwise stagnant area, providing community interaction space that will connect to the existing green space network of downtown St. Augustine. Connections to historical downtown St. Augustine are also vital to the project’s success. The project site is a former landfill of approximately 12 acres and an additional area located adjacent and to the north of the former landfill. This landfill & surrounding area is located in St. Augustine, Florida at the end of Riberia Street in the Lincolnville Historic District. The landfill has been capped and can be safely developed with no hazard issues. This capstone project explores the creation of a park that can be used for multiple passive and some active recreational activities, in addition to providing opportunity for education, wetland access, and community events. The focus will be on revitalization of the area and improved tourist attraction.
