Northwest Florida Water Management District has completed much needed renovations to Cotton Landing on Holmes Creek.
The restoration stabilized approximately 125 linear feet of shoreline, helping to reduce erosion as well as new storm water treatment. ADA boardwalks and access points have also been installed. The landing has new overlooks with benches, a picnic pavilion, porta-potty, and improved parking. In addition, native trees such as Florida maple and cypress have been planted to help restore the eroded areas. Primitive campsites are planned for the near future.
The $315,000 project was funded from Gov. Scott legislature, DEP and the District.
Cotton Landing is located 3 miles north of Vernon off of CR 277. The landing is managed by Northwest Florida Water Management District and Washington County.
