City to mark opening of new Jordan Marsh park

A ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for the new Jordan Marsh Water Quality Treatment Park.

The public is invited to attend on March 1 at 11 a.m. and officially celebrate the completion of the project, located at 790 Casa Ybel Road. The ceremony is being hosted by Sanibel Mayor Kevin Ruane, Vice Mayor Mick Denham and Councilmembers Chauncey Goss, Jason Maughan and Holly Smith.

The park is accessible to pedestrians and cyclists.

Its trails will be open immediately following the ribbon cutting.

"Sanibel has a legacy of not just advocating and educating on behalf of the environment and water quality, but also investing our own dollars into protecting the natural resources here on-island," Ruane said. "Our Jordan Marsh Water Treatment Park is another investment we have made on behalf of the generations who are yet to experience the uniqueness of Sanibel."
