Nice little park for the kids. We had my grand daughters birthday party here and they loved it. There was an area for the party and the kid could play in the playground or in the little water park area.

A wonderfully planned entertaining park for children. Things are laid out in age appropriate sections. Since we live in Lakeland heat is frequently a problem for young children and there is little or no shade.

We took our grandchildren here and it was amazing! Hills to climb, all kinds of equipment, including bouncing, swinging, climbing, and even a play fire engine that children can pretend to drive. Lots of trees and beautiful plants and trees. Some picnic tables and other places to sit. It is excellent and one of the best children's park we've visited.... More

The City of Lakeland put an enormous amount of thought and effort into this park. It's the #1 park in Lakeland, and there is a clear sense of pride in the maintenance and choices to play with. I have been taking my kids to Commonground for five years, and they have loved every moment. Some of my fondest memories with... More

Excellent million dollar plus family park. Built to fit the needs of ALL children. Our only concern is the excessive amount of auto breakins while visiting the park and burglaries of the neighboring homes, by the undesirables that roam the streets near the park now. Safe to visit, just lock your car and remove any valuables from sight. We know... More

With few trees or coverings over jungle gyms or activities it can get very hot and uncomfortable for you and your little ones. My daughter loves it when we go but again limited to early morning or fall/winter times. Lots for every age, restrooms, pavilions for parties or gatherings and water fountains are available. Parking can be limited off of... More

Common Ground Park was laid out in the form of a giant butterfly. There was a community effort to raise money for the park. A lot of volunteer hours are donated yearly in order to keep the park maintained, The flowers in the landscape are designed to attract butterflies both through their food value as well as for their larva...

I love this Park. It is kept clean and they are always working to keep it looking nice. I visited several other local parks and they were so dirty! This Park is fun and clean and a kid pleaser!
