Bayport Pier to Reopen in 2018
The long-awaited reconstruction of the Bayport Pier is expected to be completed in 2018.
In 2016, the pier suffered significant damage due to Hurricane Hermine.
The process to receive FEMA funding delayed the reconstruction; however, the project is now in the design phase and will be going out for bid shortly. We apologize for the limited access currently available to this valuable amenity at Bayport Park. We appreciate the community’s patience during this process and look forward to it reopening soon.
Located at 4140 Cortez Boulevard, Bayport Park is a seven-acre Hernando County public park that sits on the Gulf of Mexico at the west end of State Road 50.
