- Beach Improvements & Special Thanks to Pedro Menendez Students –The new walkover crossing A1A south of 23rd St is now open to provide safer beach access, as is the Solana access ramp. These improvements are part of a long list of facility and access enhancements made by St. Johns County within the past year to meet beachgoer needs, and parking lot expansion for North Beach Park is scheduled for this summer. Special recognition goes out to Pedro Menendez High School and Mike Rosenberg's ABS Academy/Carpentry students who built five benches for St. Johns County beachfront parks out of "rescue wood." Beach improvements press release.
