Spanning a mile of Intracoastal waterway, the Riverfront Esplanade is a premier gathering space and botanical garden in the heart of Daytona Beach, Florida. Composed of more than a mile of waterfront running trail with comfortable benches and swings overlooking the Halifax River, the Riverfront Esplanade also features a dog park with an agility course and a state of the art splash pad. Currently under construction, the north Esplanade is now open with the south Esplanade opening later this year.

About Brown Riverfront Esplanade Foundation Inc.

Founded in 2017, Brown Riverfront Esplanade Foundation, Inc. (BREF) is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization established by J. Hyatt and Cici Brown. BREF’s mission is to restore the riverfront to its previous glory and facilitate the restoration, operation and revitalization of Daytona Beach
Riverfront Esplanade.

In 2019 BREF entered into a long term lease with the City of Daytona Beach for the purpose of redeveloping, operating and managing the Riverfront Esplanade, formerly Riverfront Park. The City of Daytona Beach contributes financially to the maintenance and operations of the
Riverfront Esplanade.

Inspired by memories of his childhood spent along the riverfront, Chairman Hyatt Brown, along with the BREF Board, is committed to delivering a spectacular space where future generations can go to experience the charm of downtown Daytona Beach.
