Colonial Drive Park is located just to the North of Colonial Drive Elementary school. As it is surrounded by low income minority neighborhoods, it is a good place to go for free recreation. There are tennis and basketball courts, 2 activity buildings, a football field, a water splash area available for rentals, and 2 baseball fields. The Larger baseball field was all fenced off due to high levels of toxic contamination found in the soil, like many other parks in the area. There is a walking/bike path which goes around the park. There is a tiny area of preserved natural pine rockland habitat with native plants on the West side of the park which the walking/bike path goes through. Not a lot of wildlife was observed: just a hawk, anole lizard, and a grackle. Unfortunately the natural area has been littered with garbage, and does't appear to have been cleaned up in a long time. Also be careful of the tires on your bike or car as there was broken green glass everywhere. Apparently those who use the park as a drinking spot, prefer Heineken. Illegal drinking at this park shouldn't be a surprise, as there were no park staff or security anywhere to be seen. Parking and admission is free.
