History This facility is owned by Lee County which was maintained and operated for a long time by Lee County Parks & Recreation. A few years back the City of Sanibel and Lee County made an inter-local agreement for Bowman's Beach, turning the operation and maintenance over to the city. Even though this facility is located just outside the Sanibel city limits, due to logistics Turner Beach was also turned over to the city to operate with the county still maintaining ownership.
