Thomas Pilcher Park
DescriptionWhether you are looking to drop a line in the Choctawhatchee Bay, launch a boat or wave runner, or just enjoy a breathtaking view at lunch or sunset, Thomas Pilcher Park is just the place.
The newest addition to Walton County’s park system, Thomas Pilcher Park is located underneath U.S. Highway 331 and the Clyde B. Wells Bridge. The park officially opened in April 2017 and is named after Thomas Pilcher, a lifelong Walton County resident who worked for the Florida Department of Conservation as a boating safety officer, as well as search and rescue operations.
Pilcher Park features a 380-foot fishing pier; four boat ramps; six 55-foot docks; three picnic shelters; restrooms; three fishing platforms; plenty of parking for both cars and boat trailers, as well as picnic tables, benches and grills.
