Exciting news for Florence Park! We're thrilled to announce upcoming updates to our park facilities. In the Fall of 2024 and Spring of 2025, we'll be renovating the exterior bathrooms and the playground area. If you're planning to rent the shelter house, rest assured that the interior will remain unaffected during these updates. However, access to the playground area may be impacted. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this time as we work to enhance our park for everyone to enjoy. Stay tuned for more details as we progress with the improvements. Thank you for your continued support of Florence Park!
