When world travelers reflect on the most memorable city parks they’ve ever enjoyed, several come to mind: Hyde Park in London, Stanley Park in Vancouver, National Park in Athens, Central Park in New York City. Comes now the unveiling of the newest park that will rival the world’s best: Coachman Park.
Consisting of 19 acres on a bluff hugging the sparkling Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) off downtown Clearwater, Coachman Park is destined to become a treasured destination in and of itself. Offering something for everybody, the park opens June 28th to what will surely be gasps of awe and excitement.
Visitors entering a grand walkway will be treated to expansive greenery and gardens, cascading waterfalls, artwork, paved trails, picnic tables, a kiddie’s playground and an unrivaled splash pad. Plenty of shaded areas and benches will be the perfect vantage point for people watching and viewing boats in the ICW.
Designed to draw visitors to Clearwater for more than just its spectacular beach, Coachman Park will connect directly to the downtown restaurants and businesses.
The northern end of the park presents a venue named The Sound with a state-of-the-art stage and a covered pavilion with a capacity of 4,000 seats to keep attendees shaded and dry. Another 5,000 park viewers can also enjoy concerts and events organized by Ruth Eckerd Hall. Space can be rented at The View overlooking the stage for VIPs, weddings and groups.
Clearwater already represents a variety of attractions including what many consider the best beach in the world. Now add to that Coachman Park. Whether your goal is relaxation, contemplation or simply a stress-busting getaway, Coachman Park will take its place as one of the planet’s favorite destinations.
