New oceanfront parking lot opens

Posted On: February 12, 2019

A new off-beach parking lot at 1255 Ocean Shore Blvd., Ormond-by-the-Sea, will provide additional parking and beach access for the public. The Volusia County Council will cut the ribbon for the new park at 9 a.m. Friday, Feb. 22. 

Argosy Park was named after the Argosy Motel, which was built on the property in 1953 and operated by the Clark family for 61 years. Volusia County purchased the property in 2014 to expand off-beach parking. The County Council chose to continue the Argosy name to accentuate the community’s rich coastal history.

The park includes 42 parking spaces, showers, a bike rack, a renovated seawall, stamped concrete with aluminum handrail, and an ADA beach access ramp.

Volusia County Chair Ed Kelley and District 4 County Council Member Heather Post will attend the event.
