Project Description

WGI prepared the conceptual design for master plan improvements to one of the
City’s historic parks; Sara Sims Park in downtown Boynton Beach. Sara Sims Park
was a 12-acre, blighted park in one of the City’s poorest neighborhoods, named in
honor of a well-known community activist from the early 1900’s. The park included
a number of passive and active recreational activities, including walking trails,
basketball courts, and a children’s playground, all of which had fallen into disrepair.
The park is also part of the City’s Cemetery Heritage Trail.

The design for the master plan improvements included developing various
walking trails and trailheads, updated modern restrooms, signage improvements,
and also incorporated public art elements. Additional improvements incorporated
landscape and irrigation improvements, as well as various park elements including
pavilions, security fencing, and parking upgrades. As part of the master plan
improvements, WGI also developed a contemplation area within the historic
African American Cemetery inside the Park.
