Clearwater’s Coachman Park Redevelopment Plan is the project that will bring all these visions to life. Construction of a $15-million, 4,000-seat covered amphitheater, as cornerstone of a redeveloped Coachman Park, is slated to begin this summer following approval in June 2020 by the Clearwater City Council.

The Coachman Park plan is a part of the Imagine Clearwater planning process, a community-driven series of public workshops where the city worked diligently to establish a plan for revitalizing the park and its surrounding areas.

Past Updates on Imagine Clearwater Design Plans:

Stantec, the city of Clearwater's consultant on Imagine Clearwater, has announced that the design plans for Imagine Clearwater are at the 30 percent stage. Below is a video that captures the design and feel of the park. Take a look and enjoy.

 

At this stage in the park design process, the public can expect to see a refined project schedule and scope and finalized design criteria. Spatial requirements for design elements are determined (“Will all these things fit?”), but very few specific dimensions are determined. Textures, colors, and materials are only loosely determined and may change. Feedback at the 30 percent phase is important and can be incorporated into the next phase of design plans. 

The city will be sharing the 30 percent designs and the public’s feedback at a Dec. 16 session with the city council. The public will have an opportunity to see and provide feedback on the 60 percent and 90 percent design completion in 2020.

  • We are all hoping that downtown becomes a place where both residents and visitors will go for entertainment, relaxation and leisure. Since we are the people that are going to be living in this area, being a part of the process is very important.
    Camille Hebting, Clearwater Ferry, 01/01/2017
  • I think this master plan is a long time coming. I have two grown daughters, so when they come back I want them to see the growth. They are our future. This plan will enhance Clearwater. This city holds a lot of potential.
    Laura Braswell, Clearwater Resident, 01/01/2017
  • The future of our city is literally being built on common ground. This plan is designed by, and for, all of Clearwater's residents. It will transform the downtown waterfront into a place everyone can enjoy, a destination we'll all be excited to visit, and proud to share.
    Spencer Cook, President of Morningside Meadows HOA, 01/01/2017
