The Bay Master Plan

Approved Master Plan

A Master Plan is a conceptual design that shows a plan of possible uses by park guests. The original Master Plan for the 53-acre site known as The Bay was unanimously approved the Sarasota City Commission in September 2018. An updated Master Plan reflecting additional learning and community feedback was approved by the City Commission in November 2023.

Master Plan enhancements include:

  • More sustainable green space
  • A restored bayfront shoreline
  • A continuous walking path
  • Restaurants for waterfront dining
  • Improved boater experience due to increased boat ramp capacity, and the addition of day docks and amenities, and
  • Substantial sustainable water quality improvements.
