Project Description

This project improved access for the public seeking to access the beach and water of Santa Rosa Sound from the existing pavilion/parking lot areas. The improvements included construction of two new beach access boardwalks from existing pavilion/parking lot areas to the Santa Rosa Sound. Additionally, a new kayak/canoe launch and boardwalk was constructed to increase opportunities/access for recreational boating in the waters of the sound. The project restored a roughly 1-acre area of degraded dune habitat to enhance the recreational experience by helping return the area to a more natural state. This restoration involved planting gaps in the existing dune within the project area.
