Emerson Point Preserve Park to add 97 Acres

Manatee County Commissioners voted unanimously to proceed with preparing a sale contract to purchase 97 acres of environmentally sensitive land for the expansion of the Emerson Point Preserve on Snead Island.  

The 97-acre property—which includes more than 40 acres of wetlands and waterways—has been on the Florida Forever project’s map of properties in crucial need of protection for more than three decades.

Funding for the property's purchase will partially come from funds collected through the Conservation and Parks Projects Referendum, a measure passed by 72 percent of Manatee voters in 2020.
