Project Description

This project will improve access for the public seeking to access the beach and water of Santa Rosa Sound from the existing pavilion/parking lot areas. The improvements include 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 will be constructed to increase opportunities/access for recreational boating in the waters of the Sound. The project will also restore a roughly one acre area of degraded dune habitat to enhance the recreational experience by helping return the area to a more natural state. This restoration will involve planting gaps in the existing dune within the project area.
