This is Ft Walton Beach’s nicest waterfront park. Public dock access can accomodate up to 12 small boats, although the water depth of the slips closest to shore can be less than 3′ which limits their utility. Overnight docking is not permitted without prior permission from the city.
The park offers a boardwalk, multiple fishing docks, a well-equipped childrens park, restrooms, and lots of room to play. The Landing plays host to most Ft Walton civic celebrations including the Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival, 4th of July Fireworks, Christmas Ice Skating Rink and Lights, and much more.
The docks are almost always empty due to the overnight restrictions, but we find it’s a great place to pick people up for rides and our kids always enjoy taking a boat ride to the park.
