The Choctawhatchee Basin Alliance (CBA) of Northwest Florida State College in partnership with Walton County Public Works, Parks and Recreation, and Walton County Tourist Development Council, held an inaugural kayak/paddleboard launch to promote the public recreational use of the newly renovated Kellogg Bayfront Park in Santa Rosa Beach on June 12, 2014.
Kellogg Bayfront Park, at the end of Nellie Drive in Santa Rosa Beach, was deeded to Walton County by the late Pat Kellogg in 2003. In January of this year, the park opened to the public for recreational use. Park amenities include picnic tables, water fountains, shower spigots, and a kayak/canoe/paddleboard launch, all aside priceless panoramic views of the Choctawhatchee Bay.
In an effort to drive visitors to Discover Roads Less Traveled in Walton County, CBA and Walton County TDC developed Eco-Adventures, nature-based activities that offer guests an alternative outdoor experience to the white sand beaches. The second installment of Eco-Adventures kicked off in May and will continue through the end of July. Summer adventures include a variety of activities, a few of which are located at Kellogg Bayfront Park.
