New Park in Destin Finally Opens!
Earlier this month, Miss Destin 2021, Kaylie Sparks, cut the ribbon at the long-awaited NEW park in Destin, Captain Leonard Destin Park!
Hampered by the Pandemic, completion took much longer that planned, but now this beautiful 3+ acre park that overlooks the Choctawhatchee Bay has been transformed into the perfect destination for the family to spend some quality time.
Some features of the park include over 30 fountains with a center post shower, a Splash pad and Playground, Kayak and Paddle board launch, a pier, large picnic pavilion and restrooms with outdoor showers.
The park is built on the site that was part of the homestead of Captain Leonard Destin, the first person to settle in Destin in the mid-nineteenth century. He also pioneered the local fishing industry.
Pack your lunch and load up the kids to see everything this beautiful park has to offer!
