The improved Kiwanis Family Park is now open to visitors. The City's area offers an inclusive playground with accessible features, a half-mile paved walking trail, two new park shelters, and a new bathroom facility that are available for use all year.
The City also installed a splash pad at the facility. The splash pad is only open from May through late October, weather permitting.
New Parks Department
When the City acquired the front part of Kiwanis Family Park from Lee County Government, it also took on the obligation to manage that portion of the park. Therefore, the City established a Parks Department in 2018.
The department has 4 full-time staff and will hire seasonal staff for operation of the splash pad during the summer season.
