“Evening movies, outdoor concerts or just walk....”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

This is a place for children, pets and even those in wheelchairs who enjoy a beautiful sunset, watching the ducks, reading a book or having a blanket picnic by the water. For activities, check out the website http://uptownaltamonte.com/cranes-roost-park.php. Altamonte Springs did an excellent job with this park. It does NOT have a playground, but fishing is recommended. I take my daughter, son-in-law and 4 grandboys Christmas picture there since they have a quite large Christmas tree and excellent holiday lights.

“Wow what they've done with this place!”
Reviewed January 4, 2012

Crane's Roost Park just keeps getting better and better. At first it was just a nice boardwalk around and across the lake, a great place to jog or walk, feed ducks, etc. Then Altamonte Springs added a bandstand on the water, a wonderful garden area with splash fountain and lush landscaping and beautiful hardscape architecture that makes you feel you're strolling in Greece or something. We were there at Christmastime and the lights and decorations were spectacular, with a synchronized music/lighted fountain show and great music and entertainment. But even when it's not decorated it's just a wonderful place to walk with your family or sweetie in a beautiful setting, with great places to stop and feed ducks, picnic, sit a while on benches overlooking the water. Even when there's nothing going on it's a 'happening' just to enjoy all there is to see and it's all free. Or you can easily walk to an abundant array of eateries and places to shop. Plan on staying a while...
