Two new parks are breaking ground in Lake Nona on Thursday, September 7th, 2017. Laureate City Park and East Airfield City Park will both be completed in 2018 and provide Lake Nona residents great options for fun, exercise and relaxation. We’ll have more details after the groundbreaking ceremony.
Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and District 1 Commissioner Jim Gray will join with Tavistock Development Company leaders and community members for the official groundbreaking ceremony for two new city parks in the City of Orlando’s fastest growing community, Tavistock’s Lake Nona. Both parks are planned to open in Summer 2018.
In the northern portion of Lake Nona along Dowden Road and nearby Lake Nona’s NorthLake Park neighborhood, East Airfield Park will include four ball fields; a softball field, Babe Ruth/Pony field and two Little League fields with spectator bleachers, a scoreboard and lighting for evening games. In addition, a center pavilion will provide a shaded concession area and restrooms. The park will also include a playground and trails that link you to Lake Nona’s 44-mile trail system.
Further to the south within Lake Nona’s Laureate Park neighborhood, Laureate City Park will include four multi-purpose fields, a practice area, fitness station, playground and pavilion, concession building, and trails along with ample parking. Laureate City Park will be located at the intersection of Hartwell Road and Kellogg Avenue – within walking distance of the new OCPS Laureate Park Elementary School.
