1250 Miracle Strip Parkway, Fort Walton Beach, FL 32548
The park is located on Choctawhatchee Bay, and includes a wooden boardwalk, freshwater ponds, and views of the bay. Wildlife observation is exceptional here. A heron rookery and Osprey nests give visitors the opportunity to see adult birds raising their young during the summer months, while wildflowers attract beautiful butterflies. The park is also stopover for the Monarch Butterfly migration. In addition to the boardwalk, the park offers picnic tables and benches. Access to the boardwalk begins in the back corner of the Emerald Coast Convention Center’s parking lot.
