Heroes Community Park Ribbon Cutting

On July 13th the community gathered in Lake Nona to be part of the ribbon cutting of the new Heroes Community Park in Orlando.

Heroes Community Park was named by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer. In his speech at the ribbon cutting Mayor Dyer told the audience that he decided to name the park Heroes Community Park to honor heroes in this community. Heroes in the community that the park honors include military members, veterans, police, firefighters, EMTs, and teachers.

Heroes Community Park was thought of by Mayor Dyer and District 1 Commissioner Jim Gray. They planned the park during their monthly meetings that they would have together to talk about parks in the area. The park was also made possible with the help of Tavistock Development Company.

The park has many features to it. The first feature is that it has four multipurpose fields. The park also has what Commissioner Jim Gray described as a, “super-sized playground.” The park has some great non-recreation features too such as a concession stand and real bathrooms.

Heroes Community Park is one of two parks planned to open in the Lake Nona area this year. Later this year McCoy Community Park will also open in Lake Nona.
