Outdoors is a big thing for people in Naples, Florida, and for people—like me—seeking home.

That is why residents of this magical city bathed by the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico are celebrating the commencing of the construction of the Gordon River Greenway Connector Bridge and Boardwalk.

The Connector Bridge and Boardwalk construction stage is scheduled to start in July 2017

If you know Naples, you know reasons why the city has won for two years in a row the title of The Happiest City in the USA: miles of beautiful beaches, a fantastic Botanical Garden, golf courses that account for “more holes per capita than any other area in the world” (Golf Advisor), several natural parks with landscaped areas, an extraordinary zoo, and the amazing 140-acre Gordon River Greenway, are among the many outdoor facilities open to the public laid out throughout the city.

The Gordon River Greenway is a green land containing paved and elevated wooden trails for walking, biking, and skating through mangroves and trees. With many different routes, including one bridge that brings you across the river, one trail will be connected to the future state of the art Baker Park: the Gordon River Greenway Connector Bridge and Boardwalk, soon to be built.

The Connector Bridge and Boardwalk construction stage, approved by the Naples City Council staff, is scheduled to start in July 2017, and it is estimated to be completed in about 13 months. By then, Baker Park will commence construction, sources say.
