Nathan Peters Jr. Park
In 1997 Mayor Frank Pate, Commissioners David Horton, Johnny Linton, Charles Tharpe, Edwin G. Williams, and Bill Wood established Nathan Peters Jr. Park on land behind the old Washington school site. County Commissioner Nathan Peters, Jr., worked diligently to provide a park for the North Port St. Joe Community and appropriated county funds annually for improvements to the park.
The outside basketball court was built by the St. Joe Company. Through the concerted efforts of the city, county, and St. Joe Company, a community park that offers a myriad of sports activities and a walking trail is enjoyed by many residents and guests.
The park was named in honor of Nathan Peters, Jr.
, as a tribute to his vision and determination to provide the park for his community.
A native of Port St. Joe, Mr. Peters is a 1967 graduate of Washington High School. He was employed by Arizona Chemical Company, served on the Port St. Joe City Commission in 1985, and in 1986 was elected to the Gulf County Commission where he served for twenty-four years. Mr. Peters has served on numerous boards, as a volunteer, and been a supporter of many projects in our community.
