Florida Park
1200 W Ford Ave.

Florida Park is a beautiful area nestled into a city neighborhood that gives you that warm feeling when spending quality time with your family. 

Florida Park has many amenities including two children play areas that includes playground equipment.  Florida Park also has four tennis courts that can be used at no cost.  They are on a first come first serve basis.  Florida Park also has two restrooms on site for your convenience.  There are three pavilions that can be used for birthday parties or different events.  These pavilions are equipped with a picnic table, rotating grill and electricity. Pavilions are on a first come first serve basis and there is no charge to us them.  

Florida Park is also home to the Osceola Scout Hut.  The scout hut has housed Boy & Girl scouts for many years.  The scout hut is currently used for OPAR's Tip, Tap, Toes Dance program.  This is a ballet style dance program that is taught by Robin Chandler and it is another way we can offer more programs to the children of our community.  For more information about our dance program, contact Robin Chandler at 870-740-1511. 

Florida Park is home to our Osceola Bark's and Recreation Dog Park.  OPAR broke ground in November on our brand new park designed to give our citizen's an area they can go with their dogs.  I will update more as we continue with this project.
