Miracle Strip @ Pier Park opened in 2009 on a little over an acre in Pier Park. It soon became a favorite a popular spot for tourists and locals. In April 2014, Miracle Strip @ Pier Park will be opening at their new location. Don’t worry though, they aren’t going too far. It will still be located in Pier Park, just a little further down the road. Mike from NewsPlusNotes spoke with Jenny and Teddy Meeks, owners of Miracle Strip @ Pier Park, regarding their exciting start to 2014.
Jenny said, “At this park we will be offering all of the things that we have been missing due to limitations and out-growing the property we were on for 5 years: great food, fun games, more thrilling rides, a water play area in which to cool down, and beautiful trees to give much needed shade.”
She added, “The park will have meandering walkways among beautiful landscaping and flowers, with touches of artwork and decoration here and there amidst the lights, smells, and sounds of a park from yesteryear.”
We can’t wait to see the new Miracle Strip @ Pier Park. Tourists will love the family friendly atmosphere and it is sure to be a favorite spot for many years to come.
