Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park Opens Day-Use Area

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s Florida Park Service opened a new day-use area at Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park June 23.

Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park provides picturesque coastal habitat types for a wide variety of outdoor resource-based recreational activities in one of the fastest growing areas of the state.  Visitors can enjoy fishing and paddling the inlets and bayous that wander through the salt marsh.

New facilities include, a new walk way, boardwalk, parking lot and elevated restroom with observation deck.  The new walk way provides safe and convenient access to parking while providing a view of a pond favorited by migratory birds.

The park’s concessionaire will officially open in-park kayak and paddleboard rentals as an additional opportunity for visitors to explore the salt springs.

Directions to the Park:

Main Gate is located at US 8737 Highway 19 North, about 1/4-mile north of Ridge Road on the west side of US Hwy 19 N.
