TURKEY CREEK PARK

No visit to Niceville is complete without spending a peaceful morning or afternoon at Niceville’s Turkey Creek Park. Visitors are invited to enjoy the pavilion, picnic areas, fishing platforms, swimming areas and boardwalks that locals have come to love.

Turkey Creek Park, Nature Trail and Pavilion is a conservation area that protects endangered species and highlights local flora and fauna along 4,000 feet of boardwalk. An Eagle Scout project provided markers along the trail to identify vegetation. There are swimming holes and rest areas with benches. There’s no better place to walk for exercise, shaded from the hot sun by the lush vegetation. The boardwalk is three quarters of a mile one way, with markers at quarter-mile points.

The pavilion is equipped with lights, picnic tables, grills, and a beautiful stone fireplace hearth. Many events have been held day and night at the pavilion. Birthday parties, office events, socials, team recognition ceremonies are all welcome. The pavilion works on a first come basis.

There are soda vending machines and restrooms near the pavilion.

Along the creek, swimmers have fun cooling off from the heat. Canoes, kayaks, and tubes are allowed. Gasoline engines are prohibited
