All new — the Daytona Beach Riverfront Esplanade

Partially opened in early June 2022, the brand-new Daytona Beach Riverfront Esplanade expands on the allure of downtown Daytona Beach by adding a premier gathering space and botanical garden running adjacent to Beach Street. A great place to host an event, the newly developed attraction features a mile-long waterfront running/walking trail, a dog park with an agility course and splash pad, and a collection of benches and swings overlooking the scenic Halifax River. The north Esplanade is already open and ready for visitors to explore, and the south Esplanade is set to open later in 2022.
