Gulf Shores to get new Lagoon overlook on Highway 59 sidewalk

Posted on September 19, 2014

Sidewalks, sidewalks, everywhere! Lots over sidewalk upgrades in Gulf Shores, even an awesome overlook!

So, if you’ve been to Gulf Shores lately (and why haven’t you, if not?), you no doubt saw some of the many sidewalk upgrades and additions going on. We have pathways going all sorts of places. Oh the places you’ll go, on foot! Gulf Shores was never very pedestrian friendly, but its been in the throws of the national trend toward walking and multipurpose pathways.

And its gotten a lot of matching dollars to do it. $100K here, and $100K there, soon we are talking real money!

One of the most recent additions to the sidewalk plans is an overlook off Highway 59, near 12th Street. It’ll look over Little Lagoon. And, it sounds like it will have seating and a water fountain. How awesome is that!

If you are in the area soon and see any progress on this or any other part of the Gulf Shores pathways, snap and pic and send us a note. We’d love to hear what you think!
