Southside Park Rehabilitation
The rehabilitation of Southside Park was completed in April . The project was 100% funded with a Florida Department of Parks and Recreation Grant. The improvements include: playground upgrades, basketball court renovations, new sidewalks, picnic pavilion upgrades, parking improvements and landscaping. The County anticipates removing the old racquetball courts and installing a new pickle ball court.
Keaton Beach Coastal Park
Keaton beach Coastal Park was acquired with a Florida Communities Trust Grant in 2010. Over the years the County has developed the site as funding came available. In additional to the existing park amenities , the County recently installed a new tetherball court and corn hole stations. Horseshoe pits will be added by late summer 2023. We really encourage everyone to use the playground and other recreational amenities at this park once construction is underway at Hodges Park. (Keaton Beach Coastal Park Pictures)
