NWFWMD provided a grant of $250,000 to CBA to upgrade and enhance one of Walton County’s popular recreational sites at Cessna Park on Hogtown Bayou in Santa Rosa Beach. CBA coordinated support for this project from Walton County, the South Walton Tourist Development Council, Regional Utilities, and even the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. This project converted the park facilities from septic to server, re-graded the surface area to redirect storm water runoff away from the public boat ramp to two treatment ponds, improved parking (including the addition of ADA-compliant parking spaces), and added new playground and basket ball court!
