Florida Boardwalk and Pier

Long-Term Durability and Reduced Maintenance Make Vantage the Perfect Choice for Scenic Boardwalk

The 35-ft. tall observation tower at Wall Springs Park in Pinellas County, Florida, offers stunning views of the park and the Gulf of Mexico beyond. A regional gem, the tower and about 30-ft. of ramp leading to it were destroyed by arson in 2013. In the midst of an arduous five-year reconstruction project, park engineers realized the boardwalks surrounding the tower and the fishing pier were worn and rotting. They chose to replace the decking with composite decking for those areas to reduce maintenance and increase longevity.
