  • Historic Concession Stand

    The Historic Concession Stand was the place for a cold treat on a hot beach day.


    The concession stand exemplifies early South Florida architecture. It displayed a wide counter berth in the front which could serve nearly 100 people at a time. There was also a small window for renting swimwear and towels. The stand served popular park food and drink and became renowned for its corn dogs and snow cones. One of the most iconic beverages sold at the concession stand was Nehi. Nehi was an flavored soft drink popular with the African American community. Today the concession stand is used for everything from weddings and birthday parties to hosting summer camps and kid-themed events like the Art Sea Festival.
