Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park has opened their new Dune Walk.
The new 551-foot feature wraps around the west side of the property and provides breathtaking views of the Gulf of Mexico while giving guests the opportunity to learn about the importance of dunes in the coastal ecosystem.
The Dune Walk offers an exciting new perspective of multiple exhibits at the Gulfarium, including Dune Lagoon, Fort Gator and The Bayou. Not only can guests now view some of their favorite exhibits from a new angle, there is also a new box turtle exhibit to enjoy.
“We are very excited to open our new Dune Walk and highlight the importance of coastal dune lakes,” said Gulfarium director Patrick Berry. “These lakes are unique geographical features, found only in a handful of areas, including right here in Northwest Florida.
“Many endangered species, including sea turtles and beach mice, use dune lakes for nesting and shelter, making them an essential part of the environment.”
The north and south entrances of the Dune Walk are wheelchair accessible so the new area can be enjoyed by all visitors. Discover more at Gulfarium.com.
