Your Guide to Gulf Breeze Parks~
Gulf Breeze has a park for just about everyone!

Along with East Hill in Pensacola, Gulf Breeze proper houses the most parks per square inch in our local community. This is one of the reasons Gulf Breeze is such a sought after area (that and the A+ school districts.) Here's our guide to helping you enjoy Gulf Breeze Parks!
Shoreline Park (North and South)~ Sports, boat launch & dog park

Shoreline Park South ~ Boat Launch, fantastic waterfront picnic area, & dog park
Shoreline Park is located off Shoreline Drive in Gulf Breeze Proper.  The park area spreads over 150 acres so is divided into subareas including Shoreline Park South, Shoreline Park North, and Sunset Kids Park. With its sister park across the road (Sunset Kids Park) and the Gulf Breeze Rec Center on the property, these parks offer everything you could ask for in one convenient location!
