About The Park

Our Mission and Vision

The mission of Bonnet Springs Park is to enrich our community through nature, culture, recreation, and education. Our Park serves to unify the city’s diverse population, offering public spaces that serve the needs of many by providing engaging and diverse opportunities in education and recreation to residents and visitors.

Great parks complement the personality of a city, and serve to unify its diverse populations, offering public spaces that serve the needs of many. We envision Bonnet Springs Park to be a place within walking distance to our city’s urban core where art, recreation, fun, and tranquility intersect by design. This blended urban/natural park will provide spaces to escape, engage, and explore with one another and with nature while experiencing and learning about the extraordinary history of Central Florida.

The uniqueness of this location enables a needed connection from downtown to the northwest quadrant of Lakeland, while promoting the economic development and expansion of the downtown area. Even more, Lakeland’s strategic position between Tampa and Orlando on the I-4 corridor makes it the perfect location to create Central Florida’s Place to Play, a place for everyone!
