Best Park Ever

This park is great for kids from toddlers to tweens. Lots of variety and some very unique things to play on. Plenty of picnic tables and shade as well.

Common Ground Park was built to accommodate all children, including children with special needs. In fact, there is an entire row of handicap parking spaces on the back side of the park you can enter by driving up Jonila from Lake Hollingsworth. Unfortunately, these spaces are typically empty because parents of special needs children (like myself) have a difficult time... More

Our toddlers like this park. There's lots of area for them to explore. Areas are broken down by age levels. Great place for your kids to release some energy.

We take our baby there all the time. We have also taken visiting relatives with older kids to enjoy the park.

The park is completely secured and has... More

This park is in the Cleveland Heights area of Lakeland. It's designed so that kids of all ages and abilities can play with each other. Nice landscaping with a nice path around it for taking a walk.

I took my wife and four children to this park after seeing it online and was not disappointed at all. It was one of the coolest playgrounds that I have ever seen. My boys loved the hill that you could slide down without fear of grass stains since it was turf not grass. They also loved the tunnel underneath the... More

If you haven't been to this park, you need to go. Your kids will love it. It has underground tunnels, hills to climb, trails, multiple play areas and plenty of places for the parents to sit and relax.
