Panama City residents and visitors can now access Watson Bayou by kayak and canoe from the Millville Waterfront Park, located at 301 Maple Avenue.
The City of Panama City’s Community Redevelopment Association received a $15,000 Coastal Partnership Initiative Grant from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to construct a new Kayak Launch at the park. The project includes an ADA-accessible floating dock with a launch slot and overhead assist bar as well as a fixed dock and aluminum gangway.
Construction of the new launch cost $129,511.92 and took about two months to complete.
The park is open daily from dawn to dusk.
