Background Discussion

County staff met with the Board of County Commissioners last year to discuss the need for an additional aquatic facility in the north county area.

County staff has reviewed a number of sites in the Palmetto area and identified Lincoln Park as the preferred site as it has an existing splash pad currently operated by the County.  Support park maintenance is provided by the County.  The site is adjacent to a school and has a high visibility for route 41 and will connect to the City's proposed trail system.

County staff has been working with City of Palmetto staff and also attended the City of Palmetto commission meeting on February 27, 2017, and discussed the possibility of partnering with them to provide a community aquatics facility at Lincoln Park.  The Palmetto City Commission voted to work with the County on developing a partnership with the goal of working together to have a community aquatics facility at Lincoln Park.
