The circled area indicates the construction site of the floating dock. The walking path between the two blue lines may be closed during construction.


Construction of the new floating dock at Bagdad Mill Site Park is beginning today, Feb. 8, with clearing of the site. The project will affect the northernmost portion of the park and the walking path may be closed near the construction site. Weather permitting, the dock will be completed by May 24, 2024.


Funding for this project was made possible in part by the Local Option Sales Tax and a Land and Water Conservation Fund Grant.

About Bagdad Mill Site Park

The 21-acre Bagdad Mill Site Park, located at 6953 Main St. in Bagdad, opened in May 2016 and offers a multi-use path, handicap-accessible fishing pier, picnic areas, benches, restrooms, kayak launch and educational displays.


Santa Rosa County, in close partnership with the Bagdad Waterfronts Florida Partnership and other partners, worked for over 10 years to restore the property, undertake community visioning and master planning, identifying funding and developing the site into the passive park it is today for residents/visitors to enjoy.
