Mickler’s Landing Beachfront Park restricted during dune project


Mickler's Landing Beachfront Park is currently restricted to beachgoers Monday through Friday to allow construction crews to work on the Federal Emergency Management Agency Dune Enhancement Project.

A portion of the parking lot and the beach walkway will remain open on the weekends from 6 a.m. Saturday to 8 p.m. Sunday.

The St. Johns County Board of County Commissioners unanimously approved the approximately $34 million FEMA Dune Enhancement Project on June 15. The project will strengthen the coastline dunes in Ponte Vedra Beach, South Ponte Vedra Beach and the southern three-quarters of a mile in Crescent Beach. Crews are almost finished with the dune enhancements in Crescent Beach.

The emergency dune enhancements will provide extra protection to homes, businesses and infrastructure and will be an added defense for the coastline against future storm events.
