District re-opens most of its recreation sites

HAVANA – The Northwest Florida Water Management District is re-opening most of its day-use recreation sites beginning today (Monday, May 4).

The sites had been closed in accordance with Executive Order 20-91 issued by Gov. Ron DeSantis last month.

Visitors to the day-use recreation sites must adhere to CDC guidelines on social distancing and group size.

Recreation facilities at the Pitt/Sylvan and Williford spring sites along Econfina Creek and Cypress Spring along Holmes Creek will remain closed.

The Pipes and Fillingim landings along the Perdido River will have limited parking available, but paddlecraft launches will be open.
