Vandegriff Park Chapel & gazebo to be removed at The Landing as renovation starts

This week, the City of Fort Walton Beach will permanently remove the old gazebo at The Landing in preparation for the upcoming park renovation project.

The gazebo was built in the early 2000’s with a donation from the Women’s Club of Fort Walton Beach, replacing the original gazebo that was in poor condition.

Additionally, the Vandegriff Park Chapel located on Miracle Strip Parkway at Vandegriff Park will also be removed and demolished.

The chapel, which was actually the Methodist Church’s original office built in the late 1940’s, has fallen into disrepair over the years with termite damage and rotting wood. The location of the building will be commemorated and remain on the City’s historic walking trail.
