Rish Park > Future Plans for the Park

Rish Park's roughly 100 acres extend from the Gulf of Mexico, on the west side of the St. Joseph Peninsula, to St. Joseph Bay on the east side. 

The bay side of the park has brand A new boardwalk down to St. Joseph Bay.  The Agency for Persons with Disabilities has plans to add trails and a 30-site camping area for recreational vehicles, plus other improvements.  

If you want to support future improvements to the park, please consider making a financial contribution. Make your check payable to the APD DDC Trust Account and send it to the Sunland Center at the address below. Sunland, APD's developmental disabilities center in Marianna, operates Rish Park.
