Osceola County reveals new access to Shingle Creek

Marsh Landing, just west of Pleasant Hill Road in Osceola County, is a new public access point on Shingle Creek. Guests can rent and launch kayaks, canoes or paddles boards out to Lake Toho.

On May 17, Osceola County officials unveiled a new public access point to Shingle Creek, a 23-mile waterway that curves from Orlando to Lake Tohopekaliga.

Marsh Landing, located just west of Pleasant Hill Road, includes a wooden concession area and deck, as well as a dock shaded by a blue-awning.

The county's completion of the project signals a major milestone for the county.

"This property is about two acres in size," said Commissioner Michael Harford Tuesday. "But it … has a much larger reach because it's a stop on the Shingle Creek blueway and it's recognized by the State of Florida as a blue waterway, so this is a great opportunity for you to get on the water and explore Kissimmee, Osceola County, from a different perspective, from the water."
