It takes vision for the future to create places that have a significant impact on the daily experiences of locals and visitors. Placemaking happens with proper design, community engagement, and the ideals of civic beauty. Thoughtful land use planning is evident in the Forum Park plans for development. Preserving and creating community assets makes Fort Myers an attractive place for residents, businesses, and visitors. Dogs welcome in the dog park.
3,500 acres of wetland ecosystem has a boardwalk trail and Interpretive Center. No dogs allowed and visitors are asked to observe quiet spaces. A great place to bring your budding Naturalist for a hike.
