Free Fun in Pensacola: Perdido Kids Park & Blue Angels flyover~

Hands Down: The best park in Pensacola!
The Perdido Kids Park off Gulf Beach Hwy is sure to please your family members of all ages
Blue Angels fly over Perdido Kids Park Tuesday & Wednesday mornings at 8:30 am during Blue Angels Season~

Located in Southwest Pensacola less than 1 mile from the back gate of Naval Air Station Pensacola, the Perdido Kids Park is (in our opinion) the best park in town. What other park can you go to and see the Navy Blue Angels fly above you while your children play?

This park is a little harder to find on a map, so here are some directions. From Blue Angel Pkwy, turn Right onto Gulf Beach Hwy at stop light. Travel approximately .8 miles to Perdido Kids Park on your right just past Batten Blvd.

About Perdido Kids Park
This community-themed park stretches across multiple acres and even includes a nature trail. The park definitely honors our local military and has its own Pensacola flavor.

The Perdido Kids Park is open during daylight hours and there is no fee for admission. In addition to the nice park, there is plenty of parking, picnic areas, and clean restrooms.

The park is large and is usually packed with kids especially on the weekends with children. With plenty of picnic areas and bathrooms, it's a perfect spot to host a birthday party or other get together.

And better yet, from April to October, you can routinely spot the famous Navy Blue Angel pilots practicing for their award winning shows. The Blue Angels fly right above you while you enjoy this beautiful park. Blue Angels typically practice about an hour beginning around 8:30 am on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.

  1. Are there grills out there? If not, can we bring one?

  2. I don't see that there are grills at Perdido Kids Park! I would assume you could bring a small grill to the picnic area as long as you didn't leave a mess and take your own trash. I did see a memo that they are closing the park until May 20th or so to do some updating and refresh the mulch at the park! If you have any further questions about the Park, definitely contact the Parks & Recreation Department for the best information: (850) 475-5220

  3. The last time I was there it was MOBBED and the toilet was on it's side and water running everywhere. The Blue Angels now practice at 11:30
