Project Details

Werner-Boyce Salt Springs State Park is located on the west coast of Pasco County outside of the City of Port Richey.  The park occurs in a transitional zone on Florida’s west coast that features rare natural communities, including salt marsh, marine seagrass bed and hydric hammock, and fosters high biological diversity and productivity.

The Werner Boyce Salt Springs State Park project involves several different improvements to the existing park facilities. These improvements include the replacement of existing boardwalks through wetlands, installation of new boardwalks, an ADA-compliant new kayak launch, and other new facilities with ADA accessibility and additional safety features. The primary focus of the projects is to address accessibility concerns, particularly catering to individuals with disabilities. The rationale for the proposed designs is to provide a secure and accessible environment for those engaging in recreational kayaking and trail activities. EAP conducted wetland delineation, protected species surveys, review of cultural resources and permitting for the new structures and facilities.
