Welcome to Emerald Coast Dirt & Vert

For 13 years, we managed and supervised the Gulf Coast's Only Complete Extreme Sports Facility located at the City of Fort Walton Beach's recreation center at 132 Jet Drive.

The city closed the park on December 31st, 2014 at that location and we are in current talks with the City of Mary Esther, city of Niceville and the City of Destin to once again design and hopefully manage a whole new park like the one we pioneered in Fort Walton Beach. We will endeavor to make a facility that caters to skateboards, scooters, in-line skates, Mountain Bikes, BMX bikes for use on the park/ dirt jumps & USA BMX Sanctioned BMX.

There was never anything like Emerald Coast Dirt & Vert anywhere along the beautiful Gulf Coast of Northwest Florida, or the entire country. We were proud to offer a safe place for extreme athletes to compete in a positive environment for all of its tenure here on the Gulf Coast. Emerald Coast Dirt & Vert will forever be the benchmark of a place that sought to offer something for all riders.

Our facility was built and was maintained by professionals who understand all aspects of BMX, Skateboarding and Roller Blading. We took pride in the hard work required to make this facility one of the best - constantly adding new features, organizing events or just encouraging our riders to improve and have fun.

We encourage anyone interested in finding out more about us and our facility to ask any questions you like about contracting Emerald Coast Dirt & Vert and us helping you work with your city or county on developing the same type of park for athletes that are not into the traditional sports usually seen in most towns. Also, check us out on Facebook as well for new developing projects we will be striving to bring into existence!
