The 10-acre recreation area, managed by the Northwest Florida Water Management District, is in a natural setting of native forest that includes trails and access to other springs. The District recently completed restoration activities and recreational improvements to address shoreline erosion and to provide improved recreational access and opportunities, including an extensive trail and boardwalk system. One of the trails/boardwalks leads from Pitt Spring to the Sylvan Spring area, and includes an overlook and a tubing put-in dock. A tubing take-out dock has been constructed at the confluence of Pitt Spring run and Econfina Creek. The Pitt Spring shoreline was restored to a more natural condition, with large limerock boulders between native trees and shrubs. Swimmers can access the water by stairway access. Covered picnic pavilions and a state-of the-art restroom are available in the uplands around Pitt Spring.
