All Islamorada Public Parks, Public Beaches and Public Boat Ramps
Closed to the Public Fourth of July Weekend
Friday, July 3 to Monday, July 6

Reopening at 50% Capacity July 7 through Labor Day

To support and supplement South Florida local government efforts to reduce the community spread of COVID-19, all public parks, public beaches, public boat ramps and the area known as the Fills in Islamorada are closed beginning Friday, July 3 through Monday, July 6.

All Founders Park facilities are closed to the public during the holiday weekend. The dog park, tennis courts and other fenced facilities will be locked. Entry to Founders Park will be limited to resident and homeowner use of the boat ramp.

Plantation Yacht Harbor Marina boat ramp at Founders Park:
The boat ramp at the Plantation Yacht Harbor Marina in Founders Park will be open to Islamorada residents and homeowners ONLY from July 3 to 7.  

  • Proof of residency or home ownership is required with a Driver's License (or other legal form of ID) with an Islamorada address or a Founders Park Resident ID card.
  • Those using a Founders Park Resident ID card must also show legal ID with the same name. 
  • Only boats registered to the resident/homeowner will be allowed to use the boat ramp. 

Reopening at 50% capacity through Labor Day:
Islamorada parks, beaches and boat ramps will reopen at normal operating hours on Tuesday, July 7. Upon reopening, all facilities in the Village will be limited to 50% capacity through the Labor Day weekend holiday. Limiting the capacity at parks and beaches for the remainder of the summer is an additional measure to reduce the community spread of COVID-19.  


In the area known as the Fills from MM 77.5 to 79.8 and the Indian Key Boat Ramp area, approximately half of the parking spaces will remain closed through Labor Day weekend with barriers in place. No parking is allowed except in the parking spaces provided. No vehicles without trailers, picnicking, tents, chairs, grills or other items will be allowed in the Indian Key boat ramp area and no swimming will be allowed in that shoreline area.
