When the team approached the project it seemed that mangrove mitigation would be the story line, however, the collaborative journey brought the team to a much more exciting and larger conclusion. It was agreed that pilings, coquina rock, decking, high pressure laminate panels and sculpted glazed tiles would be the perfect media for the interpretive public art markers. It's allowing for functional and interactive design for the project.
Through integrated public art and site interpretation planning, public artist Lucy Keshavarz and interpretive consultant Linda Emerson have created a holistic experience at Jaycee Park that educates and inspires visitors to understand estuary ecology, its direct connection to the Gulf Stream ecosystem and Boynton Beach’s rich fishing and cultural heritage.
This project was funded with a match using City Park impact fees and a F.I.N.D., Florida Inland Navigation District grant award.
Jaycee Park Interpretative Public Art Markers will serve as educational field trips for Public School, students, City Recreation After School and Summer Program students and public tours.
