Interested in having input on the future of Topsail Hill Preserve State Park? A preliminary public workshop is being held and will serve as a forum for the public to provide input on the future management of the park. The preliminary public workshop will be held September 21, 2017 from 5:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m., with a presentation at 6pm, at South Walton County High School, Media Center, 645 Greenway Trail, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459.

Topsail Hill Preserve State Park protects perhaps the most outstanding assemblage of natural communities on the coast of the Florida Panhandle and provides world-class outdoor recreational opportunities to residents and visitors in a fast-growing region. The park is home to 3 miles of white sand beach, one of the largest state park campgrounds in Florida, multiple dune lakes, and the rare Choctawhatchee beach mouse.

This workshop is a unique opportunity for the public to shape the future direction of the park and we hope you and members of your organization can attend for the shared effort it takes to continually improve the Florida Park Service.
