Please call BSP at (863)-732-7000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how you can become a part of history!
A park map will be provided to guests. Printed and digital versions will both be made available and we'll have on-site volunteers to provide additional wayfinding assistance. There will be tram stops located along the Lakeland Regional Health Circulator for your convenience around the sprawling 168-acre Park! Trams will be running continuously throughout the day.
Volunteers and staff will be located throughout the Park during Grand Opening Weekend for any questions, emergencies, lost and found items, and accessibility assistance.
