Promenade seawall at Castillo de San Marcos National Monument in January 2008
The concrete seawall, dating to the mid-to-late 1800s, runs from the edge of the older seawall (at the current parking lot) south to the Bridge of Lions. The first ±261'-7" (79.7m) of the seawall is NPS property (roughly where the turn-off from Florida A1A begins). The rest of the promenade belongs to the City of St. Augustine. There are 26 iron posts in the NPS section, plus one missing at the northern end. Some of the posts are replacements. The walkway is about 10'-6" (3.2m) wide.
