Parks and Natual Areas
The current focus of park development on the Mayo Peninsula is Beverly Triton
The plans that were approved in early 2019 include rerouting the approach road to
create parking and a gate house on the park side of the road and a turn-around area
on the inland side of the road, in hopes that less traffic will enter the Saunders Point
neighborhood when the park is full.
The plans include approximately 100 parking spaces. The surface is expected to be
impervious, because research shows that the high water table in the area would
make pervious surfaces largely ineffective. A restroom will be built near the open
area to the left of the current entrance, as well as walkways and parking for ADA
purposes. Current plans also include a pavilion and improved kayak launch in the
same area. Trails throughout the park will remain unpaved. A wetlands walk/play
area is planned in the woods to the left of the current entrance, and a
platform/fishing area for the large tidal pond.
Approximately 7 acres of land adjacent to the approximately 300-acre nature park is
currently leased by the Beverly Beach community, but the land may be returning to
direct park management in the near future.
Mayo Beach Park continues to be open for group/event rentals and to the general
public on summer weekends.
The draft plans for other Mayo parks are currently not moving forward. The county
