Water quality sampling taken at Bruce Beach

Bruce Beach is a natural waterfront located in downtown Pensacola sandwiched between the Maritime Park and Joe Patti's Seafood. What makes this location so unique are the 3
distinctive sites it is made up of: Washerwoman Creek, Sandy Shoreline and the Mitigated Wetland. Each site also has a different water type. This location has been affected by
events such as hurricanes, oil spills, rainstorms etc. Recently closed by the city of Pensacola due to hurricane damage, Bruce Beach will be eventually turned into a recreational
park for children. The first step in this process is establishing healthy waters in hopes that this historic site will be reopened to the public one day for all to enjoy.
