If you have been to Wes Skiles Peacock Springs State Park you might have noticed several facilities in need of repair. The NFSA is working with the Florida Park Service to make the repairs. The stairs leading from the deck to the water at P1 are falling apart, and the NFSA will be rebuilding them. We will begin work on March 25 (your help is needed) and will be working on Saturdays and Sundays for at least 5 weekends to get everything done. We will work on one side at a time in order to allow diver access during construction.
At the same time we will be rebuilding and improving the changing room at P1. The basic floor plan will remain the same, but we will be adding a roof to keep you dry during wet weather. At Orange Grove, the park will be replacing some of the stair treads and deck boards and improving the railings. The NFSA will be purchasing handitreads to improve your footing.
The total cost for materials will be approximately $7,700, of which, the NFSA will contribute $5,700 and the park $2,000. While the NFSA has funds to cover the costs, donations would be greatly appreciated. Donate buttons specific to this work will be on the NFSA website early next week.
More importantly, we will need your help throughout the project. If we get 5 or 6 volunteers for each day (more are needed on the first day), the construction will go faster. Construction experience is not needed and lunch will be provided. If you think you might be able to help, post a response, or call or text me at 850-728-0098.
