V.I. Port Authority to Re-open Lindbergh Bay Park After Repairs Are Completed

The Virgin Islands Port Authority is completing repairs to the Lindbergh Bay Park adjacent to the Cyril E. King Airport on St. Thomas, and it plans to re-open the park this summer. However, while the repairs are ongoing, the park is a construction site. VIPA reminds the public that the park is closed as a safety precaution until the official re-opening.

The Lindbergh Bay Park was built by VIPA as a public amenity in 1999. It was damaged in the 2017 hurricanes and is being rebuilt as part of the Port Authority’s Hurricane Restoration Program. The park includes sheds and picnic tables, a gazebo, a children’s playground, basketball and volleyball courts and a water park area.

VIPA will announce the re-opening date via local media, and it will post announcements on its social media pages and its website: www.viport.com.
