Well, it's literally taking decades but Miami's bay walk is gradually becoming a reality. A brand new 300 foot section of the bay walk, passing behind the Miami Women's Club and connecting two other existing sections of walkway, opened this week, providing an important link in the chain.
Miami’s bay walk, extending along the edge of Biscayne Bay from Edgewater to Brickell, through the heart of the city has been in the planning stages for decades. Yet, with plenty of false starts, this great civic amenity designed to ensure public access to the waterfront is still nowhere near completion. At times, the city's dream of a completely interconnected bay walk connecting and opening Miami’s urban core to the waterfront appears tantalizingly close to completion and, at others, completely dead in its tracks.
