Jones Swamp Wetland Preserve and Nature Trail is part of the Bayou Chico restoration project. It was created to provide protection for Pensacola Bay. The preserve includes 1,300 acres within the Jones Creek Watershed.
The new section of trail is located along Jones Creek. The trail extends west from Navy Boulevard at the intersection of Highway 98 to the northern terminus of Brigadier Street off Patton Drive.
The new section includes 3,100 linear feet of elevated boardwalk with two spanned pedestrian crossings over Jones Creek and two connections to the Pensacola State College Warrington Campus.
Eventually the southwest Greenway will extend 12 miles across the county connecting Bayou Chico and Perdido Bay.
The trails take you on a nice, safe walk while offering a great place for the family to enjoy the outdoors. You may encounter wildlife like birds and river otters.
