Clermont’s $9.5M Victory Pointe Wetland Park on the way

CLERMONT – More than two years in the works, Victory Pointe Wetland Park is on its way to fruition after the Clermont City Council this week approved a $9.5 million contract for construction.

James Kinzler, Clermont's director of capital planning, called the project exciting but said it's part of a larger plan.

"As the initial master plan project, Victory Pointe is a game changer and the foundation of our master plan implementation. We are very excited to be moving forward with it," Kinzler said.

Victory Pointe, on the surface, is a regional stormwater project, but incorporated within it, is a unique wetland filter marsh system that will channel highly filtered, clean water out into Lake Minneola, boardwalks, trails, benches and an observation tower for a passive park. The project also includes triathlon beach, a multi-use venue that will include staging areas, plus start and finish lines for local triathlons, a new event area and green space for concerts, cultural events and more, a pavilion for awards and other ceremonies and green space for concerts and other cultural events.
