A favorite destination for locals and visitors, the PCB Conservation Park offers opportunities for a variety of outdoor recreational activities. The City established the Panama City Beach Conservation Park in cooperation with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection for the enjoyment of hikers, bikers, and nature lovers.
Encompassing over 2,900 acres, the Conservation Park has 24-plus miles of trails and over a mile of boardwalks that lead through cypress domes. The trails range anywhere from 0.6 miles to 11 miles, with 12 different trails to choose from. Parking and public restrooms are located at the Trail Head building along with picnic tables and a covered pavilion which is available for rent.
Hours of operation are dawn to dusk, 7 days a week. Be sure to bring your binoculars and cameras for bird and wildlife watching. Dogs are permitted, but must be kept on leashes. There is a limit of two dogs per person. Guided Audubon bird walks, volunteer, and recreational programs for park guests are offered seasonally.
