Manasota Beach Park

Sweet Sparkman Architects as Architects

Located opposite the vehicular access way to Manasota Key, Manasota Beach Park has a panoramic beach front view of the Gulf of Mexico. Centered at the gateway of this park is the distinctive new pavilion and accompanying garden plaza. The gently sloping roof recalls the extraordinary legacy and history of the Sarasota School of Architecture. Raised slightly above the beach, patrons to the concession area overlook spectacular views in a covered picnic area environment. The concrete roof slab floats above the enclosed building elements on exposed concrete columns. Sea oats are abstractly expressed by slanting aluminum members along the pavilion perimeter. This is reinforced with the horizontal design elements in the garden plaza walkway represented by the natural stone element of the pavers.
