Fun in the Sun – Year Round

Leave a comment

Imagine a sunny, warm day spent relaxing on the beach with family and friends.  As you peer out over the sugar-white sand and the sea-oat covered dunes, you see the shimmering turquoise water.  You can almost feel the refreshing sea air swirling around you.  This isn’t pure imagination; this beach really exists!  On the St. Joseph Peninsula, near Port St. Joe and Cape San Blas, paradise awaits – year round.  Come discover William J. (Billy Joe) Rish Park, owned and operated by APD.  The park is not only a fabulous getaway, but also built for people with disabilities (all disabilities) and their family members, caregivers, and guardians.  Billy Joe Rish offers special ramps to provide access to the Gulf of Mexico and boardwalks that connect the cabins to the beach, event hall, and pool.  Even the pool is wheelchair accessible!  Billy Joe Rish offers many amenities which makes this the perfect park for day trips as well as overnight stays.  Turn imagination into reality – visit Billy Joe Rish Park today!
